Montana Project
August 04, 2011 in Installs | no comments

As I previously mentioned, Scott and I were in Montana at the end of June for a project install.  This is a new home built on the Madison river in Montana.

This is the backyard, which, I have to admit, is really the best part of the home.  If you are into fishing, you can cast a line at the edge, wade in and fish, or just float down the river in a tube or boat.


Last week I went back to Montana to meet with photographer, Gordon Gregory, to have the home professionally photographed.  Gordon lives in Bozeman, MT and has been featured in numerous publication, including Architectural Digest and Big Sky Home Journal.

His website can be found here:

Gordon is very talented as you can tell from some of these photos:

Given his location, Gordon photographs a number of ‘mountain’ homes.  My project fits into the local architecture, but the interior is more transitional than ‘lodge’.  We spent from 7am to 9pm taking a number of pictures of the home.  The photos will be finished in about 3 weeks, but in the interim, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek of a few of the main spaces.  I took several of these with my iphone, so apologies upfront for the quality of some of the images!




Side & back of the house (still under construction at this time)


The house is about 5,500 sq ft and has one ‘great room’ which houses the living area, kitchen, dining, breakfast and office area.  There are 5 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths.  Once I get the professional photos and post them to my website portfolio I will let you know.  In the meantime, here are a few quick shots:

This tile in the ‘green’ bath is mocha travertine with 1/2”x1/2” green glass bands set on a diagonal.

The project was great fun and a great experience.  I’ll be excited to share with you the ‘real’ photos in a couple of months!  Now, I need to go work on lining up my next Montana project… or maybe an Aruba project…..
