Glass Houses

Can you live in a glass house?
Creative living spaces are always interesting to read about.  Imagine how living spaces differ depending on personalities and occurrences which move us to create a space that we want to spend our time and live in.  Your space should be a reflection of you.  I've always had a passion for old windows and above, Nick Olson and Lilah Horwitz  take their passion to building a glass house out of old windows for $500!
American architect Philip Johnson's famous Glass House constructed in 1949 in New Canaan, Connecticut was were Johnson made his home. A renowned architect who founded the Department of Architecture and Design at the MOMA was famous for designing The Seagram's Building in NYC as well as many other key glass towers in Dallas, Atlanta and throughout the nation.  Johnson lived in his Glass House until he died in 2005.  He was 98.

Could you sleep in a glass bedroom?  I'm not so sure but I love the fact that the sun can shine right into your room and that experiencing all  weather elements that Mother Nature creates.  Possibly the most beautiful place to watch fall's changing leaves and a beautiful snow storm.  Maybe like living in a slide show of beautiful photographs constantly changing.

From the most ultra modern glass structures created by famous architects to the do-it-yourself hands-on homeowner and creator of  unique glass houses,  confirms that beautiful living structures are definitely in the eye of the beholder.
