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:
