GO FOR AN ECO-FRIENDLY AND COST-EFFICIENT DESIGN

YOU DON’T NECESSARILY HAVE TO EMPTY YOUR WALLET JUST TO COME UP WITH A GREAT HOME

 Whenever it comes to building yourself a new home, the first thing that’s going to come to mind would be the expenses. Of course, when you want to build your house either you go big or go home, right? Which means going for the best materials money can buy. What if we told you that you won’t need any of those high-quality or high-end materials? Sometimes a great home can be borne out of the humblest of means.

We’re talking about the use of reclaimed materials, materials that would otherwise just be thrown in some landfill from a demolished structure. Sure, we can’t save an entire home down to the last nail but at least we can give its various materials a second chance in life. Doing so will allow you to save a great deal on expenditures, along with helping the environment. This was the direction an artist and an architect behind the Scavenger’s Hut took and as you can see the result speaks for itself.

The house features a lot of living space with its high ceilings and a suspended room which extends from the main structure, and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize natural lighting. This comes to show that it’s not really all about what materials you use, but it’s how you execute the design.

When artist and activist Anna Hoover was considering the cabin’s design, she was looking for something simple and rustic that would be a “thought refuge, a room with a view to sit and contemplate future projects and reflect on recent travels and interactions, plenty of ‘headspace’—tall ceilings—and the ability to host other artists for studio time,” she explained.
