When it comes to funky design and creative use of reclaimed material Derek “Deek” Diedricksen is the building master. In this case it’s a custom designed and built 140 sq. ft. off the grid cabin called the Glass House because it’s loaded with recycled windows.

Using recycled glass, windows, wood and other odds and ends Deek came up with the Glass House. When you go inside you’ll see it’s great for weekend getaways. But with some modifications you might be able to make this funky tiny cabin livable year-round. What do you think of this funky off-grid cabin? Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
