Office Off the Grid

This stand alone structure is set up to function with autonomy, completely off the grid. What freedom- to plop down just about anywhere, and have a place to call your own. The adjustable solar panels on the roof of this up-cycled 20’ x 8’ shipping container provide for a climate controlled work/ storage space. On one end of the structure is a self-contained battery end-cap with 5 days of battery backup. ‘Fully integrated, SPACE units are capable of accommodating job site activities, special events, and emergency response operations.’ I’d venture to say it might even be the perfect  cabin, retail or studio space. What do you think? Durable, functional, and modular, these units offer a myriad of design possibilities.

Chasing the Light

Ugh.  I'm still full.

What a wonderful holiday weekend!  But I am the first to admit I have over indulged and it isn't even December yet!  I'm feeling heavy and stuffed and my feet are dragging.  Add in the darkness that settles into the corners of our days here in New England as early as 3:00 in the afternoon and I might as well skip the rest of the holidays and go to bed from now until June.

Thankfully, I found some really inspiring photos this morning from a fantastic photographer, James Merrell.  The spaces are light-filled and airy – both things I can appreciate in my post Turkey-day stupor.


Can we talk for just a moment about that installation above the fireplace?  I feel like I have seen it somewhere before but I can't put my finger on it.  Wherever the trend stems from, I absolutely adore it.  it combines my love for everyday snapshots with an unexpectedly simple display concept to create a larger piece that is modern, fresh and yet still personal.
