The house is a vacation home (if only they rented this thing out) and was designed to withstand the seasonal hardships.

      Shell House in the Japanese Forests It was designed by a group of architects from the company Artechnic, just to be part of a fantastic landscape: The Japanese forest of Karuizawa, a little town located on Kitasaku District, Nagano, in Japan. As you can see on the picture it has a great architectonic design, it is very unique and it kind of integrates the landscape. It looks to be a very good place to spend some calm and relaxing vacations.

    My mission: To convince the hubs that spending WAY less and building something WAY more eco friendly doesn't mean we have to live in a tiny "mud hut." I love the freedom of design that a cob house would allow.
