This remarkable home among the ponderosa pines consists of two buildings. The main residence is a 2500 sq. ft. glu-lam timber structure. The spacious custom home building main residence has 1 bedroom and 1 ½ baths. You can enjoy a breathtaking view from the front of the house which is 75% commercial windows which allow natural light to illuminate and warm throughout the home. The roof is constructed from glulam (glued laminated timber) beams with rough sawn purlins and ping tongue and groove decking. The use of glulam provides moisture resistant greater strength that is pound for pound, stronger than steel with a stiffness compared to dimensional lumber. The result is strength and durability. The fireplace and entry are made of dry stack rainbow slate.

The next building is every child’s dream house. The Children's Bunkhouse is a three level building with a 6-degree slope on the exterior walls. Invite the all friends over; there are 5 bedrooms and 2 baths. Just like a medieval castle, the exterior stone of the bunkhouse is a moss rock that runs up to the top of the parapet cap. Let the kid inside you come out and go to the top of the castle tower to see the exquisite 360 degree view of the Black Hills, near Keystone and Mount Rushmore. This is a once in a lifetime house. Custom home building in this project was a true devotion to creativity and professionalism.
