25. This small rustic cabin is handcrafted from 100-year-old reclaimed barn wood. Located in Sullivan County, NY, this retreat is totally off the grid - no water or electricity. The bluestone patio hides the house’s concrete supports. The owner uses a brook nearby for bathing (with biodegradable soap), or wood-fire water heater for the occasional hot shower. The house is furnished with all sorts of artifacts from his frequent travels.
