Bowen Residence and Stables Construction

Congratulations to Dean Kurtz Construction and craftsmen for winning the Construction Industry Center Master Craftsmen Award for their work on the Bowen Residence and Stables Project in Custer. The award serves to recognize the individuals in the industry that perform their work to the highest standard and help to encourage personal initiative, ingenuity, originality, and extra effort on the job.

The Ivan and Barbara Bowen Residence and Stables project consisted of a new 3600SF residence plus a new four stall horse stable and associated site development. The residence is a conventional frame structure with timber frame roof structure over the great room. The exterior includes low maintenance materials such as reclaimed snow fence lumber from Wyoming as siding and exterior window trim, a combination of wood and steel framing for the deck with Trex decking. Fascias are wrapped in prefinished steel and the soffits are covered in clear, vertical grain red cedar. The use of natural materials makes the home blend beautifully with its surroundings.

Interior finish materials include the clear vertical grain cedar on the ceiling in the great room and guest suite. Both bedrooms include a wood feature wall. The feature wall in the master suite is black walnut and the one in the guest suite is made of beetle killed ponderosa pine. All interior trim, doors, wood floors, and casework were constructed of black walnut.  

Interior trip carpentry and wood ceiling work was done by Dean Kurtz Construction’s subcontractor, Legacy Construction. DKC crews did all of the frame carpentry and exterior carpentry to include siding, trim, and decks.
