This historic property near Ennis, Montana was ready for a bit of modernization. Our client wanted to expand their entertaining area, replace the rickety old bridge, and make a place to host weddings and other events across the creek on the island. When we arrived on the scene the old bridge was about to fall into the creek, not to mention being in the wrong place, so we got out our magic pencils and went to work. Andre' our stone mason built the end posts from native rock he gathered nearby, and tied the entire work into a short wall on one end to keep visitors from straying near the old waterwheel. The new bridge is wide enough for service equipment to cross, and spacious enough to allow guests to linger and enjoy the creek, the waterwheel, and the stunning scenery.
