Just two miles south of the small town of Wilson, this project resides on 35 acres surrounded by mature aspen trees. With excellent views of the entire Teton Range and Sleeping Indian Mountain, this lot is surrounded by stunning mountain ranges, clear blue skies, and forestry. This lot has access to a 1,300-acre trail system for many outdoor adventures, including cross country skiing, hiking, biking, and blue-ribbon fly fishing in the creeks. Within this trail system, there is access to Bridger-Teton National Forest. Wilson, Wyoming, receives heavy snowfall, averaging over 100 inches per year, making Cypress a great choice for the exterior cladding.
MONOGATARI 2.0 is made with cypress sourced from the Southern United States and can be used for interior wall cladding, ceiling cladding, and exterior siding. Cypress is not only a beautiful wood, it is durable and easy to maintain. It contains the natural preservative oil cypressene, making the wood resistant to rot, insects, and decay. This makes Cypress a natural choice in locations with constant heat, humidity, and torrential rains.
More than two decades since their founding in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, CLB Architects have evolved, but their essentials remain unchanged. Their projects are recognizable: thoughtful, innovative, and refined in their details. A collaborative process enables them to engage clients, and therefore their portfolio is loaded with a diverse set of designs, each responsive to a particular set of conditions. The power of landscape, the quality of light, and the simple honesty of vernacular architecture influence their work. Each endeavor is guided with the firm’s philosophy in mind – inspired by place.
