Big Sky Mountain House

This mountain house, tucked in the lush beauty of Montana, embodies the landscape and scale of the Big Sky region. The location of the home is nothing short of a dream. Just a few minutes away from a groomed ski resort, touting outdoor recreation year-round. The tree covered mountains and winding rivers keep the landscape wild and alluring. A bustling town inserted into this paradise creates a community that is convenient and appealing for the outdoorsman and novice alike.

The style of the home pays homage to its mountainous surrounding with a natural stone façade and rustic wood siding. The crisp lines of the black windows present definition and serve as a reflection of the outdoors. The full glass entry allows light into the front vestibule creating a welcoming, bright space to usher guests in. The rear of the home is cloaked in glass engulfing the living and dining space with views of the valley beyond. The multiple rear decks provide additional access to the landscapes while offering entertaining space for recreation and multi-seasonal living.

The Glo A5 Series was utilized for its superior thermal performance. The triple pane fenestration products equip the home against the harsh winter months, creating a harmonious interior environment year-round. The energy efficiency of the windows and doors is achieved through triple pane glazing, a larger continuous thermal break, multiple air seals, and low iron glass. A large lift and slide door off the dining room adjoins a screened-in porch, blurring the lines of indoor and outdoor living. The robust curtain wall system of the main living area creates a floor-to-ceiling field of vision. Each of the windows and doors were selected for views and cross-ventilation for optimal proficiency.
