TMS Architects recently completed a project for a long-time client near Jackson Hole, Wyoming.The project architects were very excited to work in a different architectural vernacular – one we think of as “Western Craftsman.” The home originated as a Mormon meeting house in the 1900′s and has been transformed from a rustic seasonal camp to a sophisticated year-round wilderness retreat. Located in a valley east of the Teton Mountain Range , the house is oriented to take full advantage of the southern exposure. Before the extensive renovation was started, the property was in need of serious exterior and interior repair and improvements; the majority of the interior was gutted to install insulation, new wiring and plumbing. Finishes were either salvaged and restored such as the stain glass windows or updated to compliment a more contemporary arts and crafts style.
Furniture was placed in each room to satisfy multiple uses in order to make the most of every square foot. With the addition of the master suite above the new two car garage, the homeowners have privacy when the rest of their home is filled with guests. Their suite is complete with the addition of a private deck overlooking views of the valley and mountains beyond. For more information on this and other TMS projects, visit www.tmsarchitects.com.
