Built in 1886 at a cost of $3,900.00 Cody left planning of the house to his sister, Julia Goodman. Patrick Walsh was contracted to build the two-story, nine room house, with its numerous closets and pantries. The house is in second Empire Style with Italianate and East Lake features. Cody asked only that it be finished in six months (October 15 at the latest) and that the porches be 10 feet wide instead of the customary 6 feet. With the carpeting and furniture, the cost came to about $6,000. Cody ordered Royal Wilton, the "latest style" in carpeting, for the downstairs front rooms and requested all the furniture match in elegance. The rear addition was added in 1909. Prior to 1886, Cody's ranch had no particular name. When he built this house he hoped to be able to retire soon and become a "gentleman farmer." Anticipating retirement, he thought of the place as Scout's Rest Ranch and began to refer to it that way. In 1887 when the big barn was built he had Scout's Rest Ranch painted on the roof in huge letters, as they are today.
