Andy also drew inspiration from elements such as old fire towers that dot many of the West’s national parks, along with other regional structures made with indigenous materials. The architect and homeowners were meticulous as well in selecting just the right stones for both the exterior and interior features. “We wanted real solid stone for the tower and living room fireplace, and not just veneer or the faux kind that you sometimes see,” the homeowner says.“The largest boulders were all independently picked to create the sense of an old fort.”
