Cedar wood and concrete, created from local gravel. Planning is a simple but very nice and attractive. In general, the house looks just friendly because of the simple structure of the facade.

Jeffrey, the owner of the house called the Cottage Grove, built it deep in the woods Aprovecho in Oregon. His goal was to create a livable housing from materials designed to emit. Live here a long time Jeffrey was not going to, but more often are more and spends more time: away from the city bustle, noise and dust.

House just tiny. There is not even a glass in the windows. There is a bed, a table, a stove to heat. In the future, he plans to put Jeffrey glass. No bathroom, vanity will, compact bio-toilet. Electricity either. This summer residence garden furniture, no more than that.

Of course, living so, one must have a job or online only investments that are profitable. You can still earn a place, such as providing services of animators and artists.

Travel to America in Oregon - a sweet deal. What are the local scenery, there are no words. Perhaps in this way of life lies the future of mankind.
