You asked: Why is there a crane on top a hill in Stanley?

Tamarack Resort Q4 2020

If you’ve been to Stanley this summer, you might have noticed a large crane jutting out of the top of a hill just above town.

So what’s going up?

A public records request submitted to the City of Stanley shows a 2,785 square foot house is being built on the Sawtooth Terra Tracts on Lot 9A. 

The building plan describes the exterior as a “low single-story form.” With the south side facing the Sawtooth Mountains. 

Since originally proposed on October 10, 2019, Tom and Lynn Knudson the property owners, made several amendments to the plan, including adding steel plank guard rails and gabion walls (a box filled with rocks) on the north side of the residence and the south edge of the terrace.

The Knudson’s will expand the terrace on the side facing the Sawtooth toward the east. 

“The addition of the site walls along the south terrace will help create a buffer between the residence and the areas below,” said the letter to the city clerk. 

The building request says the house should be complete in the summer of 2021.
