Blaze Makoid Architecture recently completed a modern home in Teton Village, Wyoming for an active family of five who love the outdoors.
The house has a cedar shingle roof with a gable roof and eaves that extend to protect the reclaimed barn wood siding from the elements. A band of rustic field stone runs along the perimeter of the project base and also clad the chimneys and walls. A long, covered path leads to a one-story glass entrance hall, which frames the view with floor-to-ceiling windows.
The living room has high ceilings and a large living room that focuses on the fireplace. Sliding glass doors open to the terrace where you can enjoy an outdoor fireplace as well as a hot tub. Back inside there is a large open dining room with a table for twelve. Clerestory windows bring more natural light into the living room. On the first floor of the house there is a small office and library area at the end of the stairs.
The wooden stairs lead to the upper floor of the house, while the windows with wooden accents cast an interesting shadow on the interior walls. Upstairs is a second living room with custom-made window sills and a fireplace. In the master bedroom, the bed has been built into a small alcove with hidden lighting, while floor-to-ceiling windows frame the view. In the main bathroom, hidden lighting creates a soft glow, while the freestanding bathtub has been raised on a platform and positioned under the window. The house also has a large bedroom that comes with custom made bunk beds with personal shelves so that the room can accommodate at least six, if not more, people.
