This design style tends to be more rustic than the typical home (thus the name), consisting of bold, natural and textured buildings to match the rugged mountainous environments giving it a "rustic elegance" as well as blending into the land; using the landscape & terrain to shape the house through a multi-level design.
The broad multiple level roof line matches the terrains multiple elevation changes to protect against the elements (winter snowfall & spring rain). Roofs generally have larger and more pronounced overhangs, much different from a traditional home. It uses nature by bringing the outdoors in, extending indoor living spaces to the outside (outdoor living rooms) with decks, terraces and other exterior areas. The design makes use of the surrounding trees, boulders and other land forms, incorporating them into the home and the outdoor living rooms.
We have built many of these rugged, bold homes in the places like: Big Sky and Whitefish in Montana, Telluride, Colorado and Jackson Hole, Wyoming as well as Vail, Colorado and Lake Tahoe. The details might shift slightly depending upon geography but the stature is the same.
