From a quick glance at a distance, this home in the San Luis Valley region of Colorado may look like a shack from a bygone era:

Enitrely hand-built by  designer Victor Summers and his wife artist Lotus McElfish, this unique home is full of delightful surprises.

This 650 square foot “eco-retreat” is off-grid and situated on 40 scenic acres of land. It is currently for sale for $225,000.

Have a look at the inside…

Smart, clean lines and vintage appeal make this the most irresistable “rustic” cabin I have ever seen!

According the the website Tiny House Talk, many of the materials that Victor and Lotus used were reclaimed from torn-down buildings such as the cabinets below (recycled from an old motel)…

Salvaged wood from old boxcars and a hot springs water tower was also used in the construction of the cottage.

This compact cabin also features a solar-powered shower, composting toilet and passive solar in-floor heating design.

Small, but very serene.

I’m just CRAZY about this place! I feel like ‘packing-it-in’ and selling my kids so I can go live off the grid in this awesome little cabin!

(just kidding, my kids aren’t for sale)

But it is a gorgeous place. And it is for sale!
