Brian Schulz is a kayak instructor who built a home using materials that he found locally. It took him about a year and a half to complete the project. The end result is a beautiful home in the woods that cost $11,000 to create. Brian was inspired by Japanese architecture and the 'Japanese Forest House' has both a rustic western and traditional feel to it.

The home is located in the woods of Cape Falcon, Oregon. What makes this home so distinguishable is Brian Schulz's design choice; the structure's sustainability and the local materials he used to construct the house really stand out.

The house has every amenity you would expect in any other home and is beautifully designed. If you are they type of person who enjoys lodges and wood cabins, this is your kind of home!
