Inviting rustic ranch house embracing a picturesque Wyoming landscape


This inviting rustic ranch house was designed by Faure Halvorsen Architects, located on a sprawling multi-acre property in Sheridan, Wyoming. The architects worked to devise a cabin-inspired design that would feel as much a part of the landscape as the nearby cottonwoods and hawthorns. This home encompasses 3,000 square feet with three-bedrooms and three-bathrooms.

Designed to feel like it has been on the property forever, it is tucked into the surrounding scenery to feel cozy and inviting. Every window features uninterrupted views of the outdoors, ideal for the owners who are both nature lovers. Vintage-inspired materials were integrated into the structure — aged barn wood, hand-hewn timbers, recycled ceiling boards, and beadboard.

A truckload of lodgepole pine logs were brought onto the site, used for hand-built details such as handrails, great room floor joists and porches. To create a historic aesthetic on the exterior facade, the dwelling was clad in eco-friendly Montana ghost wood — timber that comes from standing dead beetle kill or forest fire killed timber.


What We Love: The architects did a fabulous job of blending old with new to create an inviting rustic ranch house design surrounded by a rugged landscape. A heavy use of wood adds warmth into the interiors, while historical details throughout offers a timeless aesthetic that would make anyone feel right at home. We are especially loving how every window in this home frames the views of the spectacular mountainous setting.

Above: To create an old homestead feel to this home, the architects selected smaller paned windows.


Above: Old rugs, including Native American pieces, add warmth and texture to the beautiful fir floors.


Above: In the great room, a pair of wood and wire chandeliers were sourced from a New England-based lighting company that specializes in historic designs. The floor-to-ceiling fireplace is clad with a sandstone veneer. All the built-ins are composed of oak, salvaged from a dilapidated barn in Missouri.


Above: The interior decor is comfortable and inviting, adorned with furnishings and accessories that have been collected over time. Such items consist of old Native American tapestries and rugs, leather club chairs, dressers, an old sideboard, leather chaps and a drafting table. All of the furnishings have either been passed down through family, are antique or come from secondhand stores.


Above: In the kitchen, the shaker style cabinetry is by Dura Supreme, complimented by soapstone countertops. A custom stove hood is composed of black iron.





Above: The master bathroom features a deep copper tub sourced from Signature Hardware. The walls and ceiling are painted in Pale Lichen by Sherwin-Williams.



Above: A guest bedroom on the second level was painted in a subtle historical lavender. An old metal bed compliments the vintage feel expressed throughout the interiors. A chest is filled with blankets.
