About This Project
The Wilson Creek Barn re-imagines the old Montana barn while utilizing modern details with new materials. Many of the details that define a barn are re-purposed in this home. For example, the roof is gambrel (dual-pitch), the prow at either end could carry a hay hook and the interior is framed with real-wood timbers. The home has a “Great Room” that is vaulted 25′ in the air and completely open to the Kitchen and Dining Room. Several celestial windows and 6 ‘x 6′ openings provide continued views of the Montana landscape. The second story is devoted entirely to the Master Suite, Bathroom and His/Her Closets. Please follow the Design & Build story of the Wilson Creek Barn as we develop custom details like dueling 5’ sliding barn doors, infinity edge counter-tops, stone fireplaces and more!
Vertical real-wood and horizontal siding are balanced across the front facade of the Wilson Creek Barn.
A majority of the primary views are located on the south and west side. It is always a goal to maximize views with large window openings.
Adding shade and shadow to a sketch will create a clearer representation of the real thing.
Several 3' x 3' windows are spaced evenly across the second story. They contribute to the barn theme and create a panoramic view in the Master Suite.
Covered Exterior Living
A covered exterior living space is large enough for family and friends to gather around a real-wood burning fireplace.
Prow & Hook
Their is a hayloft prow on both ends of the gambrel roof. In an old barn, this would be used to hoist hay into the loft above.
Master Suite Hayloft
The Master Suite overlooks the entire Great Room, Dining and Kitchen area. Two large barn doors can be opened or closed for privacy.
The owner of the Wilson Creek Barn works diligently to mill heavy timbers for the Main Entry, Great Room, Kitchen and Covered Living areas.
The gambrel roof is flying high. Notice that the roof structure and Great Room vaulted ceiling are designed into one truss.
Open Rafter Tails
The roof framing is nearly complete. Each truss tail will be painted and left exposed.
One of the two hayloft prows at the Wilson Creek Barn. This roof detail stretches out over a large window, in front of the Master Bath.
This stone fireplace is one for the record books. It measures nearly 11' wide by 20' tall and was skillfully installed by the husband and wife owners.
The real wood chandelier hangs in the center of the great room, in front of the fireplace. It was hand made by the owner.
A master shower should be comfortable for two. Also, floor to ceiling glass is never a bad look.
