Architecture Wednesday: Butte Residence

I don’t know much about this house, but I know there’s a lot of land attached to it: 38-acres to be exact.

Thirty-eight acres on a butte in Jackson, Wyoming overlooking the confluence of the Snake and Gros Ventre Rivers, with panoramic views of the Teton Mountain Range and National Parks.

The house itself seems suited to the land, all 7,600 square feet—in addition to a separate artist’s studio—of it, with the gentle curves of the roofline, and the use of wood and stone; not to mention glass, since there seems to be a breathtaking view from each and every room.

But I keep going back to thirty-eight acres and, in the horror movie that runs like a loop through my mind, the thought that, in Wyoming, on 38 acres, no one can hear you scream.

But at least it’s pretty …

Was lucky to spend time in that part of the country over the years. Was in those mts. that a bear stole all our food. I think his name was Yogi.
