Glass Cabin in West Virginia

May 5, 2016

Category: Living

Photographer Nick Olsen and designer Lilah Horwitz have things figured out. Several years back both of them quit their jobs in search of something better, something real. And with roughly $500 in their pockets they managed to build out a rustic home retreat in the mountains of West Virginia, made completely from discarded windows.

The towering home features a large collage of different shaped and sized windows overlooking the rolling West Virginia hills. Most of the materials were salvaged from a nearby abandoned barn and the artistic duo constructed this glass house in several months’ time. They do not live here year-round (a windowed house tends to get a bit chilly in the WVA winters), instead taking up residence in Milwaukee. That’s not to say their build isn’t the ideal 3-season getaway. And you know they were smart enough to have the glass facade facing west as well. Nothing like a fire-orange sunset over the Appalachian mountains in the summer.
