Pre-fab is often thought of as modern and in modern locations such as Malibu, but not often associated with great Western landscapes, ranch-style. Well, this family did it with the help of some great designers and architects. Jeanne and Paul Moseley’s pre-fab house opens wide to the great Western landscape of Ruby Valley and five surrounding mountain ranges in Montana. Like any ranch-dwelling family, they camp and fish on a regular basis.  “We love this valley and wanted a place that would be playful, with great flow, but in no way fancy,” says Jeanne. The home boasts almost 2,400 square feet of deck, which is obviously used for things like bathing and no doubt lots of entertaining. They added industrial wheels to everything, from sofas to the steel bathtub. The living room’s “sun visor” is not fixed but dynamic. Its slatted wood screen was fitted with a system of exposed tractor parts and hydraulic cylinders from a Caterpillar excavator, which lets it be raised from a vertical mode to a horizontal canopy to temper the sun’s rays. Because of the property’s remoteness, transporting construction crews and materials to the site day after day would have taken a heavy financial, not to mention environmental, toll. So the Moseleys chose this awesome prefab approach. We think they did a pretty awesome job! Where's your dream home location?? Images: Sunset
