    It is a shame to spoil the beauty of a place called Pioneertown, with an LA looking pad. What were they thinking?
    A real sensory shock and sadness, as I looked at the two clashes.

      It’s an Airbnb, perhaps they were thinking of renting it to people from LA
      How does it spoil the beauty of the place? it’s mostly glass, you see right through it.

        Agree. This house doesn’t spoil anything. The environment lends itself to this style. its low to the ground, so it fits in. Off grid is even better.

      I disagree. I find a general lack of bigger windows in many American tiny houses – which I do not understand, since they can contribute to passive solar heating. Unless of course they are not low energy windows and insulation is limited – which it often is. A lot of people buy into the idea of building tiny houses. But most of them are not mindful of the carbon footprint of the house. But to make a house off grid, you have to consider passive solar heating. I think this is the case with this house. The sun heats up the floor, which is used during the night to keep it temperate. So the house needs a lot of windows. And it looks like a lot of them can open up, so you get a feeling of being outside while still inside in the heat of summer. So I find this house very appropriate for the location and off grid purpose. I really like the fact, that you can see nature from wherever you look.

    Sorry, but that’s not a cabin in my book; more of a modern design.

      This website is not called “tiny cabins”. It is called Tiny House Talk. No one says it HAS to be a cabin – which most tiny houses are not anyway. And this is a small modern house, which is build for the purpose of off-grid and getting a sense of being outside when inside. Nice in the middle of summer. And it is actually not that big. It just has a wide overhang to protect against the midday sun during the hottest summer months – which makes it look bigger.

    That’s badass. It looks like something you’d see in Europe or Iceland…a modern self-sustaining getaway in the middle of nature. Love it.
    Imagine being there at night with a gorgeous full snow moon right outside?

    Love this small house with all the modern conveniences and off-grid support. I would buy something like this if it were in my price range. So awesome.

    How on earth do people live in glass houses?
    I would be too self-conscious. I guess it works as an AirBnB though. Maybe rent it for like a dinner party or something.
    I would use it as a workspace though, but all of those glorious views, doubt I could get any work done.

      Though I love it, I get you regarding the lack of privacy at night. I’d have to have shades or reflective windows at night.

    I love it! I used to live in that region and I think it suits the area well. There is a long tradition of modernist architecture in Palm Springs and the surrounding desert. It’s a matter of taste, but I love modernist architecture.

    In the middle of no where, privacy is not an issue.

    It’s got to be an energy hog nightmare in the desert heat.. And can you imagine the water bill from cleaning all the dust off of those windows? The pioneers would never have been so stupid as to build a house like this!
