North Ave Residence
Missoula, MT
Completed 2012

Rocking M Design
101 East Broadway, Suite 612
Missoula, MT 59802

This project consisted of a functional and aesthetic 'face-lift' to an existing residence. The Owner had recently purchased the property for its location and amenities, but desired a completely different look and feel. Roof forms were modified and replaced to provide generous overhangs, with knee braces, fancy cut exposed rafter tails and gentle swoops in the manner of high quality craftsman detailing. New shingles, siding and trim above a natural stone wainscot were installed over exterior insulation to improve thermal performance and comfort. All doors and windows were replaced to match the character and further improve energy efficiency.

You and your architect:
Selecting an architect

follow these steps:
  • Consider selecting an architect as early as possible. Architects can help you define your project in every respect and may do site studies, assist in securing planning and zoning approvals, and provide a variety of other pre-design services.
  • To find a suitable firm talk to individuals that have a similar project and ask them if they were happy with the architect they selected. Review our featured projects to see if you are able to identify firms that match your project type and expectations. You can also consult our directory to find architects in your area.
  • Interview potential firms so you can learn how the architect’s team will approach your project. Also review projects the firm has designed that are similar in scale and type to yours.
