House in the desert

A couple and their two teenage daughters decided to get away from it all.  They were living in the Los Angeles area and got fed up with the fast pace, noise and crazy traffic.  Husband and wife are both professionals in television and commute back to L.A. a few days a week.  But their home is now located dab smack in the barren desert of Death Valley, California. 

There are no neighbours for over 20 miles.  The nearest town is 35 miles away.  They are out there with the coyotes and eagles.  Complete isolation.  Strangely enough, it does look quite peaceful, yet invigorating.  After all, they are out there with nature in its most pure state.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

The house derives most of its power from solar panels.  Water is provided from a natural spring nearby.

 

The desert sun keeps the house perpetually bright.

No swimming pool, but a little hot tub to cool off during the day, or warm up at night.
