Quiet nights and peace of mind. I put a blog post on my website, link in my bio, about my time out at @jacobwitzling’s surreal cabin. Check it out for a closer look at these homes and a little back story on the character that created them🀘

There's a certain feeling I get in places like this. I've never been able to put words to it, so instead I take pictures...

Perfect imperfections. This is somewhere along the lines of how @jacobwitzling described his creations. Something interesting he showed me during my visit was they way in which small flaws began to define these homes. The way the wood ages with rain, the way the moss grows and wears away over time. This is the character that defines these places. In a lot of ways, I think it's little flaws that define all people, and intern make us beautiful and unique

More than cabins, @jacobwitzling builds homes. The love and creativity that goes into these structures continues to blow me away. Jacob built this at the age of 22 out of all recycled materials on a budget of $800. Feeling blessed to be able to explore these wonderful homes this weekend

A true one of a kind. This weekend I'm running all over Washington to document @jacobwitzling and his love for building unique cabins. This is a photograph of the man himself and his most recent creation. So stoked to show you guys these places, stay posted on my stories + live streams for more

A place to clear your mind. Thank you to everyone who responded so positively to the blog post that I put up yesterday. At first I was nervous to open up on here... But in end I'm really glad I did. More of these coming in the near future. If you haven't seen it, the link is in my bio. Thank you @joshuahmelnick for always keeping it real and inspiring me endlessly. Feeling blessed✨
