Do you believe in life in a cave? Well, here’s a comfy Utah cave house! Come and have a look inside; it can be just what you want!
1. Grant the miner
Grant Johnson, a lifelong miner, had always loved the area of Moab, Utah, and had long hoped to build a house in the mountains. In his middle years, he finally bought 40 acres of pristine land and began his renovation.
2. Started with nothing
Grant started by blowing up a small tunnel in the middle of nowhere as the foundation for his dream home. With a total area of 5,700 square feet, this “little” cave was more than enough for him to spend four seasons in.
3. The work process
The miner then used glass as walls so that he could immerse himself in the wild landscape without too many obstacles. He even solved the water problem by transporting water from a pond at the base of the mountain via a 22-foot wooden wheel that could reach his home.
4. From the outside
After years of renovation, the isolated cave has been transformed into a unique home, complete with a reception room. Let’s take a look inside!
5. The living room
At the heart of the cave is the living room. It is filled with several benches and a huge glass wall that separates the inside from the outside. You can easily read a book in natural light or just sit and enjoy the view.
6. The kitchen
Next to the living room is the kitchen. Again, large glass walls let in sunlight to guide the people cooking. When you’re done cooking, you can eat outside, surrounded by trees and nature.
7. The entertainment area
It seems Grant likes music too, and there are a lot of music-related things in the corner: guitars, stereos, speakers, and mic stands. When the weather is bad, this must be his paradise.
8. The Passage
The rooms are connected by wooden stairs and “bridges” because Grant didn’t want the modern design to spoil the feeling of nature. He did, however, provide a cozy touch by placing string lights on the stairs.
9. The Master Bedroom
The second floor is the master bedroom with a bathroom below. A “torch” is mounted on the wall next to the stairs, so you don’t trip over it at night.
10. The Guest Room
There is a smaller room, especially for guests. While there are no glass walls to look out at, there are a few lights that stay on all the time. So you never have to worry about running out of light.
11. A perfect vacation
Now Grant has turned his dream home into an Airbnb home. Those who want a short escape can come to his refuge and experience life in seclusion and enjoy immersion in nature.
12. The view at night
A short walk to the bedrock allows you to enjoy a tourist favorite, stargazing with incredible rock formations all around you. With a little luck, you might even see shooting stars in the sky.
