Montana Creative architecture + design
Montana Creative architecture + design contributes fresh vision for the built environment - integrating modern architectural vernacular with the rich historic ideals of local surroundings. The combination of two leading Flathead Valley design firms - Grover + Company Architects & Elden Creative Design - the Whitefish-based firm offers 28 + years of architectural and design experience with Commercial, Residential, Resort, Municipal, State and Federal, and Medical clients in Montana and surrounding regions.

We believe in communication, doing all we can, and delivering an excellent product. And we like making the experience a positive one for all, because positive collaboration creates positive design.

Our collaborative process invites the owner group to be aware and involved at all stages, as well as the development of alternatives with associated cost options, anticipated time lines, and proforma for all projects.

Use of 3D modeling software as our primary drafting tool provides the entire project team a more complete understanding of any design and build. With the core of our consultants working in the same system, our projects see fewer changes during construction, faster schedules, tighter budgets, and a finer end product. Montana Creative maintains key alliances with consulting engineers and architectural firms throughout Montana and across the country, contributing to top-quality teams that provide the highest level of expertise for each and every project.

Invested within the local community, all with growing families active in Northwest Montana outdoor adventure and culture, the team at Montana Creative collaborates with bright vision, smart design, and enduring creative relationships.

Commented: Can I get a plan for finishing a bunk room like this? Cost? The next trick is to select your materials carefully. This entire room is finished with reclaimed fir from an ice house in Colorado. If your home is rustic then reclaimed materials may apply. We have ...

Commented: how big is this room? Each full bunk comes out a bit more than 4.5' from the wall, in this example. So, if installing bunks on opposite walls, with a 13' span, you'd have about 4' between bunks, rather than roughly 6' in t...
