Rustic-modern barn in the Swan Mountain Range

Heritage Cabin-RMT Architects-01-1 Kindesign

This striking old timber frame rustic-modern barn is built from the reclaimed wood of older structures by RMT Architecture near the Swan Mountain Range in Montana. The barn was only built a year and a half ago and incorporates state-of-the-art mechanical features, but it was built almost entirely out of reclaimed wood from barns, sawmills and other buildings in rural Montana, all of it decades old. The family was building a primary residence nearby, but wished to build a separate structure for entertaining and recreational activities down by the spring-fed lake. It’s only 850 square feet inside and has no bedrooms, but the simple design has room for a small kitchen, a bar, a gathering area centered around a majestic fireplace, a pool and foosball table, and, in the loft, a long shuffleboard table. The finishing result of the project was a family friendly modern barn that’s true to Montana’s history and heritage.

The sliding doors on both sides of Roger Martin’s 850-square-foot “rec barn” allow a view through the entire structure, adding to the illusion it was once a working barn.

The architects designed the building with the classic proportions of an old barn, a screened-in porch cleverly substituting for one of the wings.

Needs a bearskin rug, and one of those crossbeams should have “BROOKS WAS HERE” carved into it
