“They fell in love with Big Sky’soaring Gallatin and Madison mountain ranges. As they explored the area further, a log home being built by Blue Ribbon Builders caught their eye. They contracted Blue Ribbon’s owners, Doug and JoDean Bing, toured several of the company’s custom homes and like what they saw. The Bings happened to have a 20-acre parcel of land that they were willing to sell.

“The creativity is evident in every aspect of the home, inside and out, including the unique structural design. Build on a gently sloping hillside, the residence appears to rise organically from the earth.
