Mountain View Home and Garage: This is an Industrial Style home built in the heart of the Adirondacks, on a lot with amazing mountain views. This home has all the modern accessories you could want with an industrial flare. It has an open floor plan with vaulted wood ceilings in the great room. Custom walnut cabinets, distressed hardwood floors, a chef’s kitchen, industrial lighting, and custom showers. In the great room it has a custom built fireplace. The siding is board and batten combined with rust wall Corten steel. This house has far too many unique features to mention them all, but I can’t leave out the garage. It too was built with the same industrial rustic style. The seamless, galvanized gutters and huge overhead doors make this garage a stand out.
