Built among the Northern Rocky Mountains, this spectacular home embodies all that this wild area is known for. Commissioned by the owner of Malmquist Construction, Tyler Frank and his family of five had a vision for living and entertaining in the heart of the mountains, and thus came their 10,148-square-foot home.

A staple in the community for almost 30 years, Tyler’s company is known for its artful collaborations, locally-sourced materials, and passion for building energy-efficient homes. His modern mountain home is no different; made to flow with the land, this six-bedroom home’s energy costs are equivalent to a house a quarter of its size, and its southeast-facing orientation allows for maximum enjoyment of the day’s sun without overheating.

Mixing industrial and rustic design elements, this stunning home features locally sourced barn wood, colorful stucco, and raw steel and concrete left to patina naturally through the years. Artful lighting highlights the local birch-end ceiling, the brushed gold staircase, a six-sided concrete gun/safe room, the dual-purpose golf simulator and theater room, and much more.


A modern sanctuary in the gated community of Whitefish Hills. Locally-sourced Montana materials, energy-efficient design, concrete countertops and flooring, bi-folding windows for indoor/ outdoor living, spacious indoor/outdoor room with fireplace, double roof design, oversized garage, hot tub, two wet bars, six-sided concrete gun and safe room, golf simulator, and theater room.
