Amazing Mountain Homes, Living on a Cliff

Barn Mountain House

All my adult life I’ve dreamed of living high in the mountains off nothing but the land. That dream has never changed, though, I admit, the architectural landscape has a bit (ya, I can rhyme). In high school I used to only envision an old rustic cabin built from salvaged resources among the mountain top, but since moving to the city to attend university I have been immersed by examples of amazing architecture; beautifully crafted high rises, intricately woven pieces of steel that make up a museum, massive solid timber frame buildings or best of all, what comes when rustic meets modern day engineering.

Below are just a few of my favorite inspirational mountain and cliff side homes.
