Right now we’re feeling totally inspired by photographer Nick Olson and designer Lilah Horwitz: On their first date, the couple took a walk on Nick’s family’s property in the mountains of West Virginia, where they witnessed a particularly beautiful sunset. The two jokingly wondered what it would be like to live in a house made entirely out of windows so that they would never have to view the sunset through the confined space of just one window. Less than a year later, the joke became a reality.
The couple quit their jobs, and embarked on a road trip from Pennsylvania to West Virginia, stopping at garage sales and antique stores along the way, gathering old windows that they would eventually use to create the facade of their one-room cabin, which now stands on the spot where they were sitting on that very first date.
