Traditional cabins meet the twenty-first century
A new style of architectural design is emerging in the American West, one that taps the spirit of history even while keeping an eye on the future. It’s an aesthetic that integrates a homestead heritage with sustainable living, luxury with logic, pleasure with pragmatism. From the country opulence of a renown designer’s personal living space to the practical sustainability of a series of tiny “micro cabins," Big Sky Journal: The New Montana Cabin is one part rustic, one part recycled, and all parts refined style.
Written by one of the foremost “lifestyles and living” names in the Northwest and supported by the expertise and experience of Big Sky Journal, this coffee table resource provides ideas and information you can depend on, with inspiration to create your dream. With more than 100 sumptuous color photographs throughout, this book is a treasure trove of architectural inspiration to savor as you plan or dream about your cabin, wherever it may be.

Montana Mobile Cabins
Each Montana Mobile Cabin we build is as unique as its owner, because the owner actually helps design the cabin. Individual preferences and the unique coloring of our hand peeled logs make for a truly “one of a kind” cabin.
Montana Mobile Cabins is a family owned and operated business located in Whitehall, Montana. The cabins we produce are not kits. We build your cabin on our site and transport the completed cabin to your site. Our cabins are made much the same way that log homes were constructed a hundred years ago with hand peeled logs, full front porches, rustic wood ceilings and exposed finished wood floors. Wherever your recreation destination - be it hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, hiking or just getting away, Montana Mobile Cabins provides the perfect solution for your wilderness retreat.
