OFF-GRID RETREAT | Belmont County, Ohio

This 900 square foot retreat, situated in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, blends both old and new technologies to create a self-sustaining home.  South facing glazing in the living room provides views across a seven acre lake, bringing the outdoors into the space.  It is also integral to the passive solar design.  Additional sustainable features include a fresh water cistern supplied by a natural spring and electricity generated through a solar array.
