Mountain Front A-Frame Renovation, Choteau, MT

 

Version 2

 

Our friend, Keegan, transformed her 1960’s seasonal cabin into a year-round mountain home this year. For a small building, it offered large challenges: mice were the only users of the cabin in recent years; the walls and roof were uninsulated; plumbing, wiring, windows, doors, siding, roofing and flooring all needed to be replaced. It all happened.

Keegan deserves credit for doing much of the work herself and most of the content in these photos is her handiwork. Our tasks were to provide some windows and build an insulated roof system.

Bathroom Design Tip: Choose Your Faucet First, Then Choose Your Sink

We learned this practical design tip from our plumber last week as our current bathroom project got underway: choose your faucet, then choose your sink.

Our plumbing contractor, Steve Howard, says this is because it is easier to find sinks to fit your style of faucet than the other way around.

There is so much work in designing a successful bathroom. Steve’s tip saved us time and possibly headache in the sink department. Try it on your next project.
