Entry Description: Positioned along a knoll of rolling farmland at the base of the Teton Mountains, this one room wide residence fits seamlessly to its site. It is oriented to capture all of the views and sunlight it can grasp while maintaining large overhangs for protection, yet calculated for passive solar performance. Heated and cooled by a ground source heat pump, this super insulated house sits modestly among its neighbors while providing a magnificent living experience. The rusted cor-ten siding with its charcoal colored metal roof and small wood accents, fits in perfect harmony among its cedar sided neighbors without question to its maintenance free differences. A small sod roof helps connect the Guest Wing/ Garage to the main volume of the house and the L shape plan protects the exterior courtyard from prevailing winds while it captures the mountain views. The low end of the knoll allows a pleasant daylight basement.
