About This Project
The Gallatin River Cottage is located at the edge of a large cottonwood meadow. Natural materials like wood and stone are used throughout this home design to further incorporate the beauty of the surrounding area. The main entry is two stories tall with floor to ceiling glass on three of its four sides. An open tread staircase winds up this two story space, allowing for varying views of the valley floor, tree canopy and nearby pond. The pond is fed by the Gallatin River and can be enjoyed from a covered living area during every season of the year. Please follow the Design & Build story of the Gallatin River Cottage as we develop custom details like wood window shutters, a master fireplace, timber trusses and more!
We take pride in respectfully capturing the individual style of each client. For us, it all starts with a pen and paper.
Got to love the dig! BKS Design and Build is starting a new custom home. We're calling it the Gallatin River Cottage and it is going to be incredible!
Soils have been dug-to-depth, compacted and rolled. Our engineer signed off on quality and we've started building up.
Thought Out Views
The footings are poured and the shape of the Gallatin River Cottage is visible. The placement and orientation of this home is very thoughtful.
The Gallatin River Cottage is ready to be back-filled after some much deserved 4th of July fun.
Back-Filling the Gallatin River Cottage involves moving a lot of dirt. It also means we have to dig water lines and plumb utilities into the house.
A Glass House
Notice the two halves of this home are separated by a view. We intend to keep that view with two story walls of glass.
Never Settle, Always Progress
This patio is unlike anything we've ever attempted at BKS Design & Build. Big thanks to our friends at Sight Tech Construction for their partnership.
12" x 12" timbers are finding there place in the entryway. This entryway is going to capture hearts.
This entry is a year in the making and although it isn't finished it already captivates you.
If architecture is art than this is the canvas at the Gallatin River Cottage. We're so inspired by this place!
