The Sawmill House is a Luxe Sustainable Structure in Tehachapi

Taking a modern and refreshing approach to desert home design, Olson Kundia created the Sawmill House -- an off-grid home that was made entirely from sustainable materials.

The structure was inspired by a classic campsite by featuring three large wings that are all arranged around a fireplace in the center of the home. The main living area acts as the heart of the home with oversized windows and comfortable furniture to allow all guests a luxurious retreat that looks out onto the vast landscapes. The wall of windows can be opened completely for a pavilion that merges indoor/outdoor living. All of the salvaged materials make up a unique rugged facade that is stylish and has the ability to protect the interior contents from the harsh climate.

Acting as a completely self-sufficient space, the Sawmill House looks as though it blends directly into the Tehachapi Desert.
