At first glance, one might say of this cabin: “look at that ramshackle, patched-together half-baked ponderosa.” (Well, I probably would say that.)
But the truth of the matter is that this cabin in the Flathead Valley of Montana is a stylish, eco-friendly family home made of reclaimed and recycled materials.
So have a look while I eat my humble pie.
This mountain cabin was designed by a company out of Montana called Mindful Designs, Inc.
Their design philosophy is known as “healthy sustainability” – a conscious approach to building which values quality over quantity and focuses on renewable resources and energy efficiency. I like that.
Accordingly, they used reclaimed siding consisting of recycled board and battens, shingles and corrugated metal on the exterior.
The interior is less rustic and more modern, but does continue to convey the naturalistic vibe…
Beautiful open concept rooms with reclaimed wood accents…
The kitchen is small but efficient and look at those candy corn pendent lights!
In the master bedroom, an entire accent wall is made from reclaimed wood:
Who says a rustic mountain cabin has to be dark and dingy?
Even if it resembles a woodworking shop on the exterior…
