A hunting lodge as grand as A1 Al's Pheasant Ranch requires a roof that is equally as stunning. A standing seam roof using steel from Coated Metals Group completes the rugged aesthetics of this resort located in Emery, South Dakota.
The owners of A1 Al's Pheasant Ranch knew no ordinary hunting facility would do. They wanted a lodge that would be handsome inside and out. Embracing the rustic charm of the area involved utilizing materials such as reclaimed steel and stones native to the Black Hills of South Dakota.
A1 Al's Pheasant Ranch challenged Joshua Barber of Jbar Construction Specialties, of Brookings, South Dakota, to design a structure that was attractive, energy-efficient and long lasting. The goal of this project was to impress guests at every turn.
Barber designed a timber frame and SIP constructed set of three buildings. The structures were connected by breezeways that house gun racks, coat racks and boot dryers. Each of the facility's wings are mirror images of each other and include 10 sleeping bedrooms and individual bathrooms. The common area features a grand fireplace, big screen televisions and other amenities.
The center section of the building boasts a 2,500 sq. ft. great room with a large rec room, full commercial kitchen and a conference room. A custom fireplace has cedar and spruce mantles to compliment the native stone used in the design.
Topping A1 Al's Pheasant Ranch is a snap lock standing seam roof, roll-formed and installed by Jbar Construction. The panels were fabricated using 24-gauge Kynar-coated steel in Western Rust, produced by Coated Metals Group. Barber said he chose to CMG's steel coil because, "It is the best of the best. The company and the service behind the product are A+."
Complementing the standing seam roof is custom-matching soffit, fascia, gutters and downspouts all complete in Western Rust steel. "I believe we are possibly the only standing seam company in South Dakota offering the matching soffit, fascia, gutters and roof package," Barber said. "Customers just really like the fact their gutters, soffit and roof will weather the elements at the same rate. The slightly higher cost doesn't seem to affect their decision making process."
The project was completed in 2016.
