Located in Montana's Gallatin River valley, the LC Ranch is a modern union of the primitive architecture of the region. The home's primary form is structured after a classic barn silhouette, housing the kitchen, living room, and dining area below a wood-planked gabled roof. The rusty external roofline extends out beyond the interior, flanking the main living area with a pair of covered terraces. Much of the interior is enclosed by sliding screens and glass doors, allowing for access to the outdoor spaces and surrounding views. Like the early sod homes, the bedrooms are burrowed into the hillside, hidden from view and keeping the prairie landscape intact.
