Hans Liberg has got himself one of the coolest recording studios on planet Earth!  Take a look at this woody gem of a cabin, located in the town of Hilversum, The Netherlands.  Put together by his pal, an established furniture designer by the name of Piet Hein Eek, the structure features an absolutely fabulous facade of stacked logs.  Even a row of clerestory windows get the full log treatment, and when opened they fill the compact interior with natural light…

Note the wheel on the side of the building… this deciduous dojo is mobile!

Love it!  Great inspiration for any project, large or small!  I can definitely vibe on something similar to this for a home office or guest quarters in the backyard… heck, let’s go ahead and throw custom chicken coop into the mix… those’d be some happy hens!
