Breathtaking refresh of a rustic ranch house in the Montana mountains

This rustic ranch house project involves the complete renovation of an existing residence by Van Bryan Studio Architects and Carter Kay Interiors, located in Ennis, Montana. The talented design team transformed this 1970s style dwelling into a sophisticated vacation home for two couples from Texas to share. Exposed rafter tails, rusted steel, natural stone, and wood siding are interlaced throughout the exterior and interior of the structure— creating a contemporary, yet warm and natural atmosphere.

Above: The designer’s employed tricks to create the appearance of spaciousness, yet with a cozy aesthetic. Whenever possible, the sheetrock was covered with raw wood and stone. This texture and depth helps to match what you see through the windows. Notice in the living room how the vaulted ceiling has been painted in a darker hue? This helps in from feeling too lofty.

Above: In most of the living spaces, the trim around the windows and doors was painted the same hue as the walls, helping to not detract from the rugged landscape views.

Above: To expand and warm up the main living spaces, the design team eliminated the room above the living room, creating a vaulted ceiling. A wall between the kitchen and living/dining room was torn down to create an open layout. The staircase and railing in the living room were opened up, creating a more visually expansive space. The new staircase features a metal mesh, reminiscent of fencing.
