Crimson Bluffs: A few more interior photos
Mark went to Townsend in mid-February to take interior photos of the Crimson Bluffs Home as the interior finishes are finally complete! We’ve posted most of the photos and a better description on our website here, however, we have a few more to share here on our blog. We along with the homeowners are thrilled with how beautifully this home turned out. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this project including Katie the homeowner, who did an amazing job organizing the interior design. The style of this home is modern rustic. On the day that the photos were taken in February, this passive solar home was soaking up the sun’s natural energy, yet staying at a comfortable temperature.
The upstairs of this home has an open kitchen, living room, and dining room with a vaulted ceiling and 360 degree views of the Missouri River, various mountain ranges, and the Crimson Bluffs Hillsides.
All of the custom finish work and built-ins were crafted by Dan Harrigfeld of Cadillac Custom Cabinets of Townsend, MT.
The natural wood ceiling gives the home a bright and organic feeling. The lumber used is basswood, which was brought to Montana by the homeowners from their native home of Minnesota- a homage to their roots.
The upstairs powder room is simple and clean. The high rectangular operable awning window provides privacy as well as a spectacular view of the Missouri River.

The railing of the open stairs leading to the lower level of the home. Notice the fun pocket windows along the west-facing wall. They were specifically designed to minimize the amount of glaring western sunlight entering the home and provide snippets of views of the beautiful hillside behind. They serve two other important functions: senses of security and privacy. The homeowners can see from their kitchen and living room small views of the road and who is entering their driveway, but drivers-by cannot see in.
The stairs were designed and built by Marks Lumber of Clancy, MT and were installed by Dan Harrigfeld.
