Custom Lakeside Home

This custom lakeside home built by Old Montana Building Company is located in gorgeous Whitefish, MT.  Featuring a blend of old-world rustication with contemporary elements creates a truly modern mountain residence.  Heavy timber paired with weathered plank wood, corrugated metal, natural rock, and sleek granite provide a bucolic feel in a central locale throughout the interior and exterior of the home.

A stunning 8’ tall by 12’ wide lift and slide door serves as a focal point in the open living area of this custom lakeside home.  Placed in proximity to a raw stone fireplace with a heavy timber mantle, the expansive door adds a modern elegance that perfectly complements the rural architectural elements.  The A5 Series lift and slide door was a perfect solution for the home because of the clean profile and high performance values.  Triple pane glazing, a larger continuous thermal break, high performance spacers and multiple air seals makes the A5 Series windows and doors a huge improvement on traditional aluminum windows.  The transitional indoor-outdoor space created by the large lift and slide door provides the residents of this custom lakeside home the added benefit of flexibility in aesthetics and atmosphere by simply opening the door.
