Buck Creek House, California, USA by Fougeron Architecture | via

This three-bedroom home, on Big Sur’s spectacular south coast, is anchored in the natural beauty and power of this California landscape. Our design strategy embeds the building within the land, creating a structure inseparable from its context. The site offers dramatic views: a 250-foot drop to the Pacific Ocean both along the bluff and the western exposure. Yet it demands a form more complex than a giant picture window.

The long, thin volume conforms and deforms to the natural contours of the land and the geometries of the bluff, much like the banana slug native to the region’s seaside forests. In this way, the complex structural system applies and defies natural forms to accommodate the siting. The house is cantilevered 12 feet back from the bluff, both to protect the cliff’s delicate ecosystem and to ensure the structure’s integrity and safety. The interior is a shelter, a refuge in contrast with the roughness and immense scale of the ocean and cliff. The house also shields the southern outdoor spaces from the powerful winds that blow from the northwest.

$1000 basic tiny house

Off Grid Tiny House Deep In The Carolina Woods Built For $1000 – Built from recycled and reclaimed wood. Complete with solar power, natural water source, and a wood stove. You can’t get much simpler than this and still have the comforts of home. What a wonderful little cabin. I’d live in a tiny house like that. No question.
