Tucker Ranch Residence




Tucker Ranch is a paradise for nature lovers. With the Tetons and the Snake River as a backdrop, this nearly 200-acre community is just minutes from downtown Jackson but maintains its peaceful old West wilderness feel. Our mission at this Tucker Ranch home was to maintain its backcountry serenity while equipping it with the most advanced technological capabilities available. The scope of work included

  • Fiber optic connectivity between the guest house and main house
  • Intercom communications throughout the property
  • Smarthome system incorporating security cameras, HVAC systems, lighting control and property-wide monitoring


But there was a hitch: the Tucker Ranch home was ten years old. Comprehensive smarthome systems are our specialty, so the mission in it self wasn’t particularly challenging. However, the most efficient and streamlined approach to smarthome systems is to integrate them with the home design and building process. Efficiently weaving a next-generation smarthome system into an existing home is certainly possible; it just takes an expert approach, one we were delighted to deliver.


This Tucker Ranch log home, while stunning, included none of the necessary infrastructure for implementing a smarthome system. With the exception of existing Cat5 phone lines, we were starting from scratch. If you’ve ever tried to fish a wire through a wall, you know how impossible this sounds. With log walls, wire fishing isn’t an option. That’s where creative problem solving—another one of our specialties—comes in.



Working around the log wall challenge, our team found other ways to get from main floors to upper floors. The house offered some help, with a full crawlspace and partial attic spaces, and with a few additional small repairs, we were able to incorporate all of the necessary wiring in an elegant, unobtrusive way. Working with our clients’ schedule, we completed the project in just over a year, but one part of the project came first. Our clients were full-time residents of the home, making the primary audio/visual system an immediate priority. In a few weeks, we made sure their AV needs were more than taken care of, and then we conquered the rest of our mission. Hey, we’re AV people! We know what you need.
