As part of the Big Sky Plan, we support the creation of living spaces for the working population in the area. Many of our projects will have the option to include a free standing apartment during initial construction or the eventual buyer can add it later. While constructing the apartment adds significant cost to the project, the rental income can offset this cost and can actually “buy down” the overall monthly mortgage costs. The permitting with Big Sky and Gallatin County is complete and is recorded with our properties.
In our current and planned projects, we’ve opted for separately constructed apartments above their own exclusive two car garages. This provides ample space for storage and keeps cars off the street.
Here’s an example of our current project with the apartment as an option (not included in the home price).
