Stone Creek Camp occupies 15 acres of land on the eastern shore of Flathead Lake in Bigfork, Montana and is currently on sale for $19 million! The camp consists of a master residence called the Lake House; a lodge with a communal living room, dining room, gym, storage and craft room; a 4-car garage and workshop; a guest house; a kitchen and laundry building; and a large dock. The property’s original 1940’s cabin has been maintained during refurbishment.

The Lake House is the core of the camp and serves as the main residence with its own kitchen, living room and amenities. A beautiful stacked “cordwood wall” for the interior and exterior of the home was built from Douglas Firs found on-site. The roof of the Lake House features a beautiful sod green roof that provides insulation and infiltration. Most of the materials for the camp, including the stone, wood, siding, windows and doors were all sourced regionally.

All of the decking and floors are made from durable and rot resistant IPE wood and parts of the building’s exterior utilizes low-maintenance and naturally oxidizing Corten steel. Energy efficient design is achieved with radiant floor heating, high performance and spectrally selective windows as well as super tight, closed cell foam insulation and a cold roof system to prevent ice dams.

    I’m interested in Rocio Romero’s LVL series homes, trying to learn as much as I can about her process. The foremost question in my mind–because of my firsthand knowledge of New England winters, temperatures, and ice–is: Will there be a problem with the roof drainage system? I ask because of how the roof drains are positioned. They’re enclosed behind the skin of the house, with the intakes positioned at the roof corners just behind the parapet. I just can’t see how they won’t accumulate ice dams. So, are they super insulated, heated…what? Or does it even matter? Thanks, ScaiacS
