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 see-through fireplace, topped by a found-log mantle, warms the 6,000-pound hearth stone found on the property. The stone retains warmth and releases it slowly into both the main room and the bedroom. The rough-sawn kiln-dried beams are locally milled and left in their natural state to eliminate toxic stains and sealants.
