This Montana ranch is home to a plethora of wonderful country features: the fireplace covered in craggy rocks, an elaborate wooden handrail, antler chandeliers in nearly every room, and a huge porch decked out with a swinging bench. It’s the work Jack Watkins, who built the cabin for his family in 1917, and also local firm Miller Architects, who recently modernized the space for the new homeowners.
The new homeowners wanted to maintain as much historical character as possible, so they made sure hat any new additions and renovations would blend in to the home’s original bones. For example, the kitchen was completely remodelled, yet the wooden cabinets, apron-front sink ,and log walls give the entire room a rustic look. To complete the aesthetic, the house is filled with rustic furnishings like plush leather couches, cozy textiles, and even a light fixture made of taxidermy ram heads.
