We found this little gem on Dwell.com and had to share it with you all. If you have been to our Flagship store you know we are a huge fan of freecycled wood. So naturally, the design of this studio really sucked us in. The client, much like us, took this reworking of wood into her own hands. According to Dwell, Hoover explains this method is "'Easier on the pocketbook and the environment—and you receive the benefit of a good workout.' The facade is clad in T1-11 plywood, which Hoover charred herself using a weed dragon torch."
For the woods by the woods. The house is not only built in a way that pays homage to the great outdoors, but its surrounded by a lush fir canopy. With full floor to ceiling windows and a dropping door, the loft seems as if nothing is keeping you from reaching out and embracing the trees. Well done Hoover! We applaud you for your vision and thank you for joining out catalog of cabins.
