The first Montanans homesteaded with 160 acres to call their own and build a new life. Typically, these sections were split into more manageable 40-acre parcels where homes were built and this was often referred to as the “Home 40” for generations to come. Now Home 40 is your opportunity to fulfill on the dream of living a uniquely Montana lifestyle: your dream home in a mountain setting with access to everything you love about Bozeman. Home 40 is designed with larger lots for privacy and customization, a community center, and a built-in recreation and trail system — and, with its location just south of town, you are minutes away from Main Street and the trailheads.
A neighborhood that’s a community in itself, offering homeowners common areas to gather and recreate. Amenities include: ponds for swimming, fishing and paddle boarding; an outdoor pool; a pavilion that houses a lounge area and rentable function space, a fitness room and indoor/outdoor fireplace; outdoor patio spaces for lounging and entertaining; and over three miles of trails.
A Montana native, Chad learned from a young age and rural upbringing that hard work isn’t a choice, but rather, a responsibility. After graduating from Montana State University in 2009 with a Bachelor's degree in Plant & Soil Science with a landscape design option, he created CWL Designs LLC. After several years, Chad returned to MSU for a Masters Degree in Architecture. In an unexpected turn of events, he decided to head east to work in the Bakken oil fields in an attempt to earn enough money for the upcoming school year. Chad found the early lessons on the farm helped him excel in that business environment and, in a matter of weeks, he was running BCR Services, an oilfield service company.
The success of BCR and the subsequent downturn in the oil market compelled Chad to find a career path that would keep him in his beloved Montana and close to his young family and the family farm. This is where the concept of Home 40 came to fruition: work with like-minded people who see value in not only creating a successful business but strive to make the world and Montana, in particular, a better place. Home 40 is rooted in Montana values with its appreciation of community, the landscape, and access to the natural elements that make this place so special.
