Hot-Button Topic: Contemporary Homes“It’s Little House on the Prairie 21st-century style!” — Houzz user Christin KoelWait, strike that hot-button judgment about contemporary homes; those with a great design actually please even the most hard-line traditionalists. I thought such a striking contemporary home as this converted grain silo might have stirred up a little controversy, but I could not have been more wrong. Perhaps it’s the pleasing combination of the familiar rural vernacular form, the views and the bright and warm interiors. No matter what their usual style favorite, everyone seemed to love this home in Great Falls, Montana, and the story of how the owner is continuing her father’s legacy of revering this spectacular landscape.Full story: Houzz Tour: Prairie Grain Bin Turned Bucolic Retirement Home

The grain bin is 36 feet in diameter and eight rings high. That’s grain-bin speak for about 20 feet (walls only). Pancheau swooned when Morris told him she wanted a bridged entryway connecting a hill to the second-floor living space. “It’s a dream statement from a client,” he says. “Very rarely do you have the opportunity to do something like a bridge. It’s practical and beautiful, and a great opportunity to work with the site.” With high winds in the area, he had to protect the entry. He did this by carving into the bin and creating a recessed entryway wrapped in yellow painted siding. “It’s like a warm beacon that you immediately recognize as the entry if you’re a guest coming across the hill,” he says. For the exterior color, Pancheau looked to the corporate logo of the grain bin manufacturer MFS, whose bright yellow logo remains on the portion above the entryway. He matched the yellow from that trademark to accent the punch-outs.

The grain bin is 11 metres in diameter and eight rings high. That’s grain-bin speak for about 6 metres (walls only).
