Great care, time and expense were made to buff out the Barn with vintage and aged reclaimed materials showing off wonderful patinas & colors only time can produce. The building core is constructed of new, high-tech engineered framing and structural steel, super effective blown-in insulation and other state-of-the-art materials not visible inside or out. The Barns skin was put together using wood cedar shingles, Harlowton moss rock, copper gutters & flashings, authentic antique vertical barnwood siding, rusted corrugated metal, worn & battered rafter tails, lookouts, fascia and soffit boards all weathered by 150 years of wind, rain & sun. Vernacular architecture, sensitive design, highly skilled craftsmen and gifted carpenters created this jewel that is simple, romantic and stunning.

The Barn is our Guest House, situated on its own 2 acre lot on the East Fork River - 8 miles southeast of Ketchum/Sun Valley, out the East Fork canyon. Spruce and aspen trees, cottage gardens and native wildflowers surround the Barn, which has extraordinary views of the Pioneer Mountains, a group of 12,000 foot peaks covered in snow most the year. With a large swimming pond occupied by water lilies, rushes & grasses, ducks, geese, rainbow trout and other wildlife, the property is peaceful, private and incredibly beautiful.
