Constructing this mountain lodge-inspired resort was a challenge pioneers of the old West could appreciate.
The finishes for this 181-room annex to an existing iconic resort involved 1.8 million square feet of drywall, 5,000 square feet of simulated stone, 14,000 square feet of carved plaster and various wood trims.
To create the rustic appearance required by resort art directors, KHS&S completed much of the work by hand, including hand-tooling cement to replicate stone and artistically applying drywall texture to replicate the crackled finishes typical of an aging wilderness cabin. Hardie board and batten, plywood and cedar shakes individually nailed in an uneven pattern created the exterior of the building that stands as a tribute to the lodges of the American national parks.
