New Homes
PROJECT DETAILS:Alta, WY  Architect: Max Smith

While desirous of a new home with all the “modern conveniences”, these clients wanted their property to fit in to this rural setting. Hay farms and ranches surround the site. The architect, working closely with the owners, designed a house that looks as if the original stone farmhouse was added on to over the years. By cleverly incorporating the stone in the interior of the house and assign on an enclosed screen porch” and connecting the main house via a walkway to a block “granary”, this house appears to have existed on the spot for 100 years. An underground tunnel leads to the barn, which, in keeping with Western tradition, is much larger than the house.
