The clients desired an outdoor space to entertain family and friends, but the land available on the property was not enough to build what they wanted. Working with an architect, they developed a plan to build over the existing garage. The original plan included a covered porch, but it evolved into a sunroom connected to the house. A retaining wall, walkway and stair had to be redesigned.
The homeowners requested an outdoor grilling area and a comfortable open space designed with as much natural light as possible. Installing windows on each wall of the structure gives them the open “beach cottage” style they sought and reflects the style of the main house. Incorporating the redesign of the garage front within the project scope only adds to the curb appeal of the property.

Project name: Log Home Between Two Creeks
Project location: Bozeman, Mont.
Square footage before: 825
Square footage after: 1,241
Project cost: $200,000
The project consisted of an existing log home that had taken on several additions over time. It is located on a pristine parcel at the edge of a valley, which leads up to the mountains. The clients, who are full-time residents, purchased a substantial amount of acreage behind the home and were able to feel secure in their siting of the project. The house takes advantage of the long south-facing side, with ample windows for light and views to the mountains.
The guest suite addition was improved by extending the dormer, in effect raising the ceiling of the room so that the room feels lighter and easier to maneuver without the low-slanted ceiling. An additional set of windows was added to give the guests a breathtaking view of the Bridger mountain range, allowing the scenery to take center stage.

This contemporary addition creates beautiful new family spaces while retaining the existing charm of the original home. The clients, a busy family of five with growing children, now have a large, open kitchen, new mudroom for storage, and cozy den to help make their home more comfortable and functional. Unique roof lines, vertical board and batten siding and a sleek kitchen layout make this project stand apart from industry standards.
