Georgetown Lake, Montana

Set in a grassy meadow surrounded by dense pine trees this simple weekend getaway shelters all of life’s necessities under its massive shed roof. The cor-ten steel clad form settles among the pines like a grounded ship or abandoned vehicle – at once other and very much part of its place. Placement of the home was specifically chosen to give definition and a stronger edge to the meadow which serves as an extension of the living space. The T-shaped plan consists of a 42’x16’ living volume connected to a rotated 16’ x 24’ garage volume with a 12’ x 8’ entry and mudroom pinched between. 

The living volume contains a high-ceilinged great room, single bedroom, single bathroom, and a sleeping loft above. A cantilevered deck off the loft was a last minute addition to provide the client with a safe place to sleep outside when she visits. The rusting steel siding was chosen for its fire resistance, durability, and its natural patina which bears a surprising resemblance to the surrounding pine bark. Dark painted fiber cement siding was used at the entry to create the perception of even more depth within the façade like the shadows between pines.
