About two years ago, I set out to build a harmonious home: a simple dwelling that would allow me to live a simple life, zero-impact and filled with community and close to nature. The result of that exploration is the Matchbox, a 140-square-foot home that, once completed, will be entirely carbon-neutral, off-grid, and self-sustaining.
Housed within the Boneyard Studios tiny house community in Northeast DC, I designed and built the Matchbox—with the absolutely invaluable assistance of Tony Gilchriest—to be functional, comfortable, and sustainable. For more about the house and its features, check out Matchbox-related posts on the blog, or head on over to the Matchbox page at Boneyard Studios.
The Matchbox has been featured in the Washington Post, CBS News, Dwell, the Atlantic, Treehugger, the Washington City Paper, NPR, Architectural Record, the National Journal, Urban Turf, Country Living, The Daily, UK Mail Online, the New York Daily News, ABC7, FOX5, WAMU, Reason, and Inhabitat.
