Every summer for the past five years, our family has packed up the kids, dogs and horses and piled in the car for the two day drive to our ranch in south central Montana.  We settle in for three months and completely "unplug".  We have created our true sanctuary in this place.  We did a major renovation to the main house the first year and have tackled a new project each year since.  The barn was converted into a guest house and we built a cabin in the woods.  Our friends and family joke that we are running a bed and breakfast all summer because we ALWAYS have houseguest, but that's just how we like it.  

We kept all of the interiors very simple yet rustic and used local materials wherever possible.  The furnishings are a mix of some things we hauled up from California and local finds in and around our small town. This place is where we settle in, reconnect and unwind and it has been a life changing experience for our family.  You can read more about that HERE.
