Big Sky Journal Home
Jim and Mary Speyer’s home outside of Jackson, Wyoming, is a showcase of family heirlooms dating back to the 1780s, and of treasures collected during their world travels, serving as a fascinating and artful display of their personal interests. The original 4,338-square-foot home was built in a Mountain West style with rough-sawn, reclaimed timber. A recent addition supplied about 700 more square feet. The Speyers started talking to JLF Architects about the project in July 2013, breaking ground in early 2014. Seamlessly incorporating additions can be challenging… But the design team worked to make the addition look like part of the original house, matching the existing stone and other materials.
