An Eclectic-Style House in a Mountain Setting

In this House, East Meets West . . .


Taking cues from the existing barn structure and from the magnificent mountain views,  Faure Halverson Architects designed this house located in Sheridan, Wyoming, that defies time and period, and integrates it into the amazing scenery.  To achieve a sense of timeless appeal and yet make it in tune with the surroundings – that is, instead of standing out and upstaging the mountains and the entire scenery – it becomes a part of it and lends its own aesthetic appeal. That quality is achieved by combining Western and Eastern styles, and mixing rustic with modern.  Have a good look at these photos and tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!


Built on a multi-acre property in Sheridan dubbed Big Goose Ranch, the 3,000-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath home was designed to feel as much a part of the landscape as the adjacent cottonwoods and hawthorns.

‘It’s a phenomenal property with an existing historical barn that has great skeletal bones,’ says architect Kipp Halvorsen.  His Bozeman, Montana, based firm, Faure Halvorsen Architects, specializes in creating rustic, cabin-inspired houses that blend seamlessly into their natural settings.
