Alan Cohen, architect, took a regular house and combined a unique space where he and his partner live and work, and now they are surrounded by a community.
Their home isn’t small but their story is still one of simplifying… They both eliminated their need of using vehicles everyday by combining their work space within their home as well as being in close proximity to everywhere they go.
They love it not just because the commute is gone but they are also within walking or bicycling distance from just about anywhere they would want to go.
Alan’s office is just a doorway into a 1050 square foot area. They share this space (Alan is an architect and his partner an artist).
The living space is 1730 square feet (down from 3000 square feet previously) but they have an architect office and an artist studio within.
I love the idea of having this feature (garage door) because it instantly opens up the inside of the house to the outdoors. It immediately brings the fresh air inside, which is awesome, especially in a small space.
And this garage door is extra special because it has windows from the ground up, so no matter what you get to enjoy the view.
So this is architect Jeffery Broadhurst’s off grid house in West Virginia and it was a simple DIY project.
The only way to get to it is with an off road vehicle. This story was published back in June of 2008 by Julie at Remodelista.
