Flathead Lake Retreat

This new home fulfilled a dream for its owners, who camped on the land before building it: a family getaway that blends with the natural elements surrounding it. The roof’s slope mimics the slope of the land, with siding patterns that echo sky above and lake below. We repurposed reclaimed metal roof panels as siding, installed vertical grain fir trim and shop-built custom furniture, and used locally sourced, low-maintenance flooring. The house comfortably accommodates up to 18 people, yet feels warm and intimate, with playful elements such as wasabi green cabinets and backsplash tile. Two sleeping porches recreate the camping experience, with lanterns and large windows opening to the lakeshore nearby.
