West Virginia, Take Me Home

Off-grid vacation home on a 

tight budget and a very

challenging lot.

In the fall of 2017, we were approached by Cory and Meg to help them develop a design for an off-grid vacation home located in the mountains of West Virginia.  Both working professionals, Cory and Meg had acquired a large plot of land with the hopes of someday building a small home on the property that they could use as an escape from city life on the weekends.  The two biggest challenges in making this dream a reality for them was a construction budget of only $70,000 and the challenging nature of building on a steep mountain lot with rocky terrain and no roads to the desired build site.  Meeting these challenges would not have been possible without the resourcefulness of our client and the ingenuity of the local trades they were able to recruit to help with site preparation and construction.  This design for this home was completed by our affiliate Off Grid Shelters LLC in August of 2018.
