Tryon Farm House

Tucked in the Dunes Settlement area of the eco-sensitive, 170-acre Tryon farm at the eastern edge of Michigan City, Indiana, the house reflects a dedication to preserving the planet’s resources.  The airy, light-filled 1,000 sq ft vacation home features cedar, corrugated metal and found materials.  Basically, one room with open access to the kitchen, the home features natural ventilation by placing windows higher on the warm side and lower on the cool side offering the effect of a soar chimney.  Double glass doors with windows on either side lead to a screened-in porch.  A bog and meadow outside provide a unique setting for this serene and protected getaway.


Sustainably designed modern cabin in the woods.
