Small Duct System Enhances “Rustic Chic” of Montana Cabin

The master bathroom features its own fireplace, period claw-foot bathtub and discreet central heating and cooling with Cobalt Creed’s installation of the Unico System.

Ted, a Coloradan, and Linda, a transplanted New Zealander, both grew up in open spaces and dreamed of one day building their perfect cabin in the mountains. In 2012, that shared dream came true when they began construction on a log home. While the base design of the structure was supplied by Kalispell Montana Log Homes, Ted and Linda had very specific custom finishes and a unique vision for their new home’s interior. In fact, Linda designed the floor plan. Interior appointments of hand-hewn flat logs, reclaimed barn wood and corrugated metal meld to create a pioneer vintage vibe that Linda dubs “rustic chic.” “Putting it all together is my passion,” she explains.

The Unico System’s unobtrusive round outlets blend into the ceiling. Wood outlets are available and can be stained to match any wood type, the Valentiner’s decided that dark brown outlets would better contrast and highlight the reclaimed barn wood of the ceiling.
