“The skin of the building is shingled so it can flow without a corner board, much like the scales of a fish, as was Michels’ intention. To achieve the homeowners vision, KMA worked closely with Blue Ribbon Builders of Big Sky and Bozeman’s Design Assciates for interior decor.”

“To build their home, the [owners] hired Blue Ribbon Builders, a construction company that has been building homes in the Big Sky area for nearly 30 years. It turned out to be a good match, because owners JoDean and Doug Bing are very experienced in dealing with customers who live out of the area.

“The draw was the Yellowstone Club, where there are no lift tickets,” she said. “We like that we can use the house for skiing in the winter and golf in the summer when it’s miserably hot in Nashville.””
