The materials used were reclaimed from a barn that’s over 100 years old.
It really doesn’t get much simpler than this. There’s an outhouse with a composting toilet and an outdoor water heater in case you want a warm shower.
When the weather’s right the owner takes his baths in a nearby river with a small waterfall.
There are concrete piers that support the house and the deck which are hidden by stacked local bluestone.
Newkirk, the owner, travels frequently so he’s outfitted the house with furniture and decorations from all around the world.
The home is totally off-grid with no electricity or plumbing. It’s a great place to live peacefully and get away from it all with beautiful views, a nice breeze, and wonderful outdoor space.
