The 3 Hanging 3 Ranch has been recently improved to a high level.
It is complete with custom-built houses, shops, high quality outdoor pens and arenas. The design phase included Centre Sky Architects out of Big Sky with the construction undertaking implemented by Yellowstone Traditions, both of whom are renowned in their respective fields.
There are essentially three living structures that are included in a compound located near the entrance of the ranch. This includes a 2,200 SF three-bedroom, two-bath home with round log exterior. The residence is appointed with rough-sawn fir flooring, granite countertops, old fir and pine ceilings and trim, and custom cabinetry along with a covered, screened-in porch.
A 900 SF guest house was also constructed within the compound. This two-bedroom, one-bath structure also has the same customized finishes and rustic design as the main residence. This building was one of the original ranch buildings that was moved onto a new foundation in a new location and completely renovated.
A 2,300 SF two-story barn has existed within the compound for nearly a century. This building has been lifted onto a new concrete foundation, squared, roofed and made substantially sound. It is at a point where the drafted plans to convert into a main residence could be implemented or the structure could be made into more of a “recreational” building used as a bar or game room.
Two buildings are used for storage and operations. A 30’x50’ log shop is heated, insulated and has a concrete floor. Also a steel framed 40’x80’ building was completely remodeled and converted into a storage and shop facility. This structure is Corten sided and roofed with a rusted patina to match all of the other roofing material within the compound. Internally the building is divided to include an office, open shop area, and lockable enclosed storage area.
Considerable thought was put into the design of the equestrian facility.
A 24’ X 168’ eight stall barn complete with storage and a wash bay lead into eight 14’ X 60’outdoor runs. An adjacent 24’ X 42’ wing with an office, tack room, and a laundry/vet/bath room lies on the east side of the stalls while a 24’ X 42’ wing with breeding facilities and storage resides to the west. The entire building is insulated, and very well ventilated.
Outside there are 11 large horse pens along with five additional pens used for other livestock. This area has outdoor lighting and each pen has access to geothermal waterers. For outdoor training there is a 160’ octagonal pen constructed of full logs and steel. Lastly there is an 84’ X 252’ cattle handling facility with a large gathering pen and multiple sorting pens. All outdoor pens are constructed of continuous metal pipe designed to stand up to abuse and to be exceptionally long lasting.
