Barn living meets amazing mountain views in this guesthouse

Not your typical farm shed

From the outside, this barn guest house on a 15-acre property near Jackson, Wyoming may come off a bit jarring. A big glass wall under a gambrel roof barn and between weathered reclaimed wood siding? Once you’re inside though, that decision suddenly makes sense.

Designed by local firm Carnie Logan Burke Architects, the 2,400-square-foot new construction nods to traditional work barns with its shapes and materials, but offers convenient modern living inside. The dramatic second-floor space holds a streamlined kitchenette, bedroom, and modern bathroom on one end, and on the other, an exercise area with a spectacular view of the Tetons and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. In an interview with Big Life magazine, the owner explained that she wanted a scenic workout area for bad-weather days—ah, the dream!

The first floor, spruced up with checkered (and heated) ceramic tile floor, houses the clients’ collection of vintage vehicles. Have a peek inside.
