Good Neighbors: A Natural Home on Montana's Flathead Lake

Nestled into the hillside overlooking Flathead Lake, this Montana home welcomes friends of all kinds.

A view of Flathead Lake enlivens the spacious kitchen. A local Amish woodworker built the pine kitchen cabinets, and Mary stressed and finished them with natural-oil stains, then cut rusty metal panels to decorate their fronts. She carved birds and animals into scarred spots in the kitchen wood.
