The German village of Colter Bay is getting a new, two-story, two bed house that was built with a $2 million grant from the USDA.
The house is a modern take on the original home built by Colter County, which was built in 1905 by a wealthy family of German immigrants, according to a press release from the village.
It’s made from modern timber and features a large glass front window that opens onto a terrace.
It will be the first of a handful of properties in Colter that will be renovated with the help of the USDA, according the press release.
It was built by the village’s Historic Preservation Program, which received funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The village’s current home was built around 1892, when Colter was just about to be incorporated as a county.
It was designed by architect James S. Haines and was made up of five separate houses.
The Colter House, which sits on a 1,000-acre farm, was built to last.
It is being renovated to include a larger, newer home.
It will also feature new interior finishes.
It cost $2,500 to build, the USDA said.
