Wolfcreek Ranch Private Residence

G Brown Design, Inc. developed a master plan for the 1,000-acre Ranch near Woodland, Utah, and is providing designbuild construction services for the 10 acres being developed around the home. Site improvements include an outdoor amphitheatre, barns and horse paddocks, a wildflower meadow which will also serve as a seasonal ice skating rink, a 1.5-acre pond, a recreation field for year-round use, and interconnecting trails which follow the
natural contours of the land. The site is located adjacent to the Wasatch National Forest at an elevation of 8,000, boasting panoramic views of the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains. Groves of quaking aspen and mature fir trees on the property support numerous species of wildlife. Old jeep roads were revegetated using a tree spade to relocate nearby trees into the roadway. Native grasses, forbes, trees and shrubs were added to enhance the existing vegetation. Natural materials were also incorporated into the site amenities, and the home was carefully sited in order to minimize impacts on the vegetation, wildlife, and view corridors.
