Bridger View Ranch
Bridger View Ranch is a beautiful western-style home featuring an amazing view of Ross Peak in the Gallatin Valley of Montana. Built with Premier SIPS, it features both efficient construction and efficient energy usage. Above the garage is a bed and breakfast as well as a separate greenhouse to the west of the main home. The owner has created their own webpage where you can view the details of the construction process here http://formationarchitecture.com/the-reese-creek-home
Why SIPS?: The ability to emphasize the quality of the building envelope and the speed of construction provided a sense of confidence in the early meetings with the clients. The architect was very satisfied with the support received from the suppliers and SIP engineers which added efficiency to the architect's design schedule.
Benefits of SIPS:
- Almost no waste of panel material because of factory-installed lumber package and custom-cut panels. This helped save time, money, and effort.
- Fast installed time despite weather challenges and holidays.
Innovative Design: The design was devised to order a sequence of spaces and end up at an amazing view of the Bridger Mountain Range.

"The use of Premier Panels is an easy way to have an unlimited expression of creativity throughout the design process. Our clients and contractors love that the fact much of the build process takes place at the SIPs factory making onsite assembly and “close-in” to be completed quickly. The incredible customer service that Premiere provides is what sets them apart in this industry. The sales and engineering crew at Premiere are important members of our team - helping us to provide unique design, quality, energy-efficient and cost-effective construction for our clients." - Craig Bergstedt, FORMation ARchitecture
