Sustainable buildings and micro homes have become increasingly popular among the newer generation. People nowadays prefer utility rather than lavish settings and big homes.
Lilah Horwitz and Nick Olson are a design couple who has shown that smart and functional designs can be both comfortable and stunning. In 2012 they quit their jobs and set up a camp in the mountains of West Virginia.
They have built their own home out of repurposed wood, recycled windows, and various other materials. The total amount of money they invested was incredible $500. They have created the cabin on their own by using materials from a nearby abandoned barn.
The exterior of the structure is made of salvaged windows with different shapes, sizes, and styles. They give the entire structure modern and rustic artistic flair. Lilah and Nick have collected the windows during their road trip adventures. The entire structure is off the grid, so at the moment it has no electricity.
Lilah is a clothing designer and Nick is a photographer. The couple got back at work but still comes to this peaceful place to relax and connect with nature.
