Members of the indie band Bowerbirds [1] have been trying their hand at sustainable design with this fantastic self-built studio project. Since 2007, Beth Tacular and Phil Moore [2] have been constructing their very own cabin and music studio, using only salvaged materials [3] and running it on solar power. The band recently found success raising money on Kickstarter,  [4]and they are well on their way to minting a new album within the green construction.

The idea of a DIY cabin and studio began with the goal of living simply and self-sufficiently. The site re-uses many materials, including secondhand windows, flooring and a log wall from an old tobacco barn. The design also incorporates a rainwater catchment and a grey-water system, and the interior is heated with a combination of solar energy and wood from the land.

In the end, the duo have created a brilliant green space; a cozy cabin nestled in the woods and an inspiring place to work.
