Tumble Creek, A Modern, Net Zero Cabin

Located in Washington State’s Cascade Mountains, Tumble Creek Cabin is a sleek modern interpretation of a cabin, utilizing eco-friendly materials and technology inside and out. Using¬†solar panels, passive solar strategies, and a Tesla Powerwall, the relatively large cabin manages to be net-zero, meaning it doesn’t rely on the electrical grid at all. Indeed, on some days it makes more energy than it consumes.

In addition, the house makes use of Cor-ten steel and reclaimed barn wood for construction. Large overhangs from the cantilevered roof create additional shade from the sun, reducing energy load. Designed by¬†Coates Design Architects, we think it’s a classy and responsible design that should inspire additional sustainable architecture. Via Uncrate:
