When you enter the home from the north, you are greeted with an immediate view of the Gallatin Mountains. The entryway has an integrated, custom designed and built mudroom with a built-in bench for taking off shoes as well as cubbies and closets for storage. The upper level has a vaulted ceiling and an open floor plan with a kitchen, living room and dining room that provide spectacular views of the Gallatin, Absaroka, and Crazy Mountains. There is a large custom designed and crafted bookshelf all along the western wall. Pocket windows create a fun pattern of views along the eastern wall. There is also a pantry and half bathroom on the upper level.

An open stairwell leading to the ground floor is located in the center of the building. A long, narrow window provides views and natural illumination as you descend the stairs. The ground floor includes an exercise area, a guest bedroom with bathroom, an office, a reading room, and a laundry room. The office has a custom crafted polycarbonate sliding barn door. Bringing the polycarbonate into the home (it is also used on the exterior awnings) creates a continuity between the exterior and interior.

A few steps down from the ground floor is the master bedroom area, its own module secluded from the rest of the home that has a vaulted ceiling. This area includes the master bath, a walk-in closet, and a large bedroom with stunning mountain views to the south and east. The eastern wall of the master bedroom has a pattern of pocket windows like those on the upper level.
