A House Built with Love for Sunsets, and Glass Windows
A photographer named Nick Olson and a fashion designer Lilah Horwitz left their daily jobs to fulfill their dreams of building and living in a house made from recycled windows. The beautiful glass house was built where the couple had always dreamed of building a home, in the mountains of West Virginia. The couple had always wanted to watch the sun set over the mountains from their home, and so they came up with the interesting concept of using glass windows for the entire facade. This not only gives the house a romantic view, but also allows for a large amount of natural light to come in, reducing energy consumption from artificial sources. To build their window house, the couple went on a long trip to collect dozens of old windows at garage sales, antique dealers, or wherever they might stumble upon in the area. After gathering enough construction materials, they headed to their favorite spot and got to building their amazing home. They used old windows (of course), recycled wood and vintage furniture. They even managed to install an old stove for burning wood in the winter season. Stitched together with a lot of love and hard work, their beautiful glass home is complete, and it looks nothing short of amazing.
