New York interior designer Scott Newkirk spends his weekdays living and working the hectic big city lifestyle, but on weekends, he escapes to his 300 square foot off grid cabin the woods. The cabin, which has no electricity or running water, is made from reclaimed materials. It sits surrounded by a spacious deck and bluestone patio.
Newkirk uses an outdoor propane water heater for occasional hot showers, though the stream running near the cabin provides the perfect spot for summertime bathing. A composting toilet sits in an outhouse near the cabin.
“The house reminds me of every fort I built in the woods as a kid growing up in Jackson, Mississippi”
