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.
