A Lookout Above: A Cozy, Solar-Powered Home in Oregon

Despite the complexity of the design, this homeowner finally gets her sustainable watchtower-inspired home.

In Central Oregon’s high desert, with sweeping mountain views, the Solar Lookout home is designed after 1930s-era fire lookout towers. Built of 75 percent recycled woods and powered by solar energy, it stands as a model of creative design and sustainability.
