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 the kitchen, a shorter chest-style refrigerator, painted to match the cabinets, allows 360-degree views of the Cascade and Ochoco Mountains. The countertops are milled from a large Douglas fir log washed up on the shore of Whidbey Island.
