New York Magazine: Weekends Off the Grid

New York Magazine: Weekends Off the Grid

Jul 17, 2007

Simple Living. We always enjoy the Home Design features in New York Magazine. This week's issue was no exception with the weekend home of Scott Newkirk, a fashion stylist and interior designer. In Unplugged, we are inspired by Newkirk's 300-square-foot house where he lives off the grid on weekends. Designed with local and salvaged materials, the retreat is a stunning example of simple beauty...

With no electricity or running water, Newkirk bathes in a nearby brook.

A wood-fire water heater for the occassional shower. The outhouse features a composting toilet.

The minimalist guesthouse.
