Ahh, summer time

The wildflowers are blooming, a sign summer is starting in Montana. From zip-lining at Whitefish Mountain Resort, picking cherries on Flathead Lake, watching “The Sound of Music” at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse, or hiking to Iceberg Lake in Glacier National Park, this is one of the very best times to be in Northwest Montana. www.explorewhitefish.com

Making an entrance…

We like wood. We especially like our big timber beams which we use as accent details on the exterior and interior of our homes. Today my framers set the beams on the entry of our new East Rim home. I have to admit it was pretty exciting and impressive seeing them put it into place!

Bring on the color

Designing and building a house with us is truly a fun process from the moment we start working on the plans till the day you walk in the front door. Making all those plans and ideas come to life is very exciting! Here we are working on some exterior color schemes to help our clients visualize their custom Whitefish home.

Corbels

Check out the corbels on the front of our carriage house! In architecture a corbel is a structural piece of stone, wood or metal jutting from a wall to carry a super incumbent weight, a type of bracket.

The Doors to the Unknown

I can’t help but brag a little about our carpenter Tom, who just finished this amazing reclaimed wood room. Tom created this set of false doors which look so real everyone who sees them wants to pull them open. They really are a work of art, as is this special space he just created!

Room with a view

Trusses were just set at our new project today, which makes it feel like a house! This is part of the full wall of windows looking out the back of the great room. Pretty nice view, wouldn’t you say?

Special Spaces: Bunks

We love the idea of designing special places in your home which are both a creative use of space and something uniquely you. This particular client has a grandson who loves the color orange (and sleepovers!) Just imagine all the fun memories these bunks will make.
