“THE PROJECT CAME TO LIFE WHEN THE CONTRACTOR AND I WERE SKIING NEAR THE PROJECT SITE; WE SKETCHED OUT AN INITIAL LAYOUT INTO THE SNOW, CREATING A VIABLE FLOOR PLAN THAT FUSED WITH THE SURROUNDING TOPOGRAPHY.”

This signature mountain home can trace its beginnings to a rough outline in the sparkling powder of a Big Sky Country ski run. The Flying Star residence is a well-crafted contemporary home located in Bridger Canyon, a private residential enclave just outside of Bozeman, Montana. This 4,690 sq. ft., three-bedroom dwelling presents an appealing blend of minimalist European styling, expansive window walls, and natural interior effects, such as massive timber ceiling beams.
A major highlight is the 17 foot high south facing glass wall featuring a pair of ultra slim sliding glass doors. These elements boast six (6) panels spanning over 40 feet capturing inspiring views throughout the main living area while physically connecting the interior of the home to the adjacent Bridger Mountains countryside.
“Many high-end window and glass door manufacturers were considered. One by one, each was ruled out” Donovan Savage from Montana Sash & Door commented. “The homeowner took a couple of trips to California to visit competitors, along with seeing a few of Reynaers projects. He was impressed with the construction of the Reynaers windows and how they achieved the modern look they were going for.”
“The main inspiration for the project was to create an indoor-outdoor environment with lots of light and openness. Reynaers windows and doors are a major home feature, since glass makes up about 65 percent of the walls. The performance of the product has been exceptional through two snowy, cold winters and warm summers. Aesthetically, the windows’ thin sight lines adds to the views from every room. The operation of the Hi-Finity doors is awesome and the operable windows are nice for air circulation. I love our home. I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s so comfortable and quiet. I feel like I’m out camping when I’m in the bedroom”, expressed the homeowner.
“THE PERFORMANCE OF THE REYNAERS PRODUCTS HAS BEEN EXCEPTIONAL THROUGH TWO SNOWY, COLD WINTERS AND WARM SUMMERS... I LOVE OUR HOME. I WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING. IT'S SO COMFORTABLE AND QUIET. I FEEL LIKE I'M OUT CAMPING WHEN I'M IN THE BEDROOM.” - Homeowner
The homeowner affirmed, "The window dealer, Montana Sash and Door, was very helpful in working with the architect, Edwin Ugorowski, to ensure perfect placement. Together with Reynaers they provided great design and installation support which led to a timely and impeccable final result."
