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.

By hiring a neighbor's excavating company, the homeowners minimized truck fuel use. And instead of blasting through bedrock, they moved the house 60 feet to softer ground. Strategically placed plants and boulders make the home look tucked into the landscape.
