Text description provided by the architects. A violinist with the Minnesota Orchestra and her family enjoy off-grid living in the original weeHouse located on Minnesota prairie land near Lake Pepin. The interior is completely wrapped in douglas fir and features IKEA built-in cabinetry and kitchen elements as well as floor to ceiling Andersen windows on both sides.

 The exterior is clad in cementitious siding painted with an oxidizing paint which provides a rustic yet hardy finish. This original, 336 SF weeHouse was built in-factory by Geoffrey Warner and a team of craftsmen for approximately $60,000 in 2003 and now stands as the iconic image for the weeHouse identity.
