Preserving Teton County
Fish Creek was built in Wilson, Wyoming—a short 25-minute drive from Grand Teton National Park. Teton County strongly believes in protecting the natural beauty in and around the Park, so teams worked delicately to preserve the abundance of surrounding vegetation.
As part of our GU!DE principles, our teams try to repurpose materials during construction. For the Fish Creek project, the board-formed foundation was constructed using reclaimed materials. Exterior finishes also included Montana fieldstone, reclaimed timber siding, and a galvanized metal roof. This home is LEED Certified with a Silver rating—adding it to the list of Wyoming’s larger sustainable homes.
Before construction on Fish Creek could begin, crews had to move an existing two-story log cabin 100 yards to a new location. The log cabin has since been transformed into the Guest Cabin.
