The home consists of the simple shapes of two practical building forms: a two-story barn form for the living areas; and a flat roof structure harkening low-slung ranch outbuildings for the garage, storage and terrace areas.

The grey-black stained wood exterior and dark-grey metal roof harmonizes with the coloration of the Aspen trees that run through this river valley.  Native Riparian plantings are being used around the home to blend into the environment – promoting wildlife and a healthy forest.
