How does the house work?
-While the house is off-grid, you still have every want and need covered like any luxury house (electricity, traditional bathroom/toilet, shower, wifi internet, etc.). In fact, you'd have a hard time even knowing the house was off-grid without knowing ahead of time. But you can feel good staying here knowing you have chosen an eco-conscious home for your vacation.
-The 1-way mirrors work using differences in light and dark. During the day, its lighter outside so nobody can see in. At night, if you have all the lights on, it would be possible to see through the glass (except in the bathroom which has solid tinting). However we have designed the house on its own 15 acres elevated 5 feet and surrounded by trees such that there would never be anybody nearby to look in. So you have no worries even at night. You are completely private.
-There is a single burner electric stove top and cookware, a counter top oven and utensils should you want to never leave and cook in house. In fact for stays beginning in 2024, we will be offering gourmet meal packages with a kitchen robot to do the cooking for you. This is an ad on, but a pretty amazing one we think. You'll never have to leave the confines of luxury if you don't want to.
-We use a projector and pull down screen for tv and movies which effectively works like a 70" HD television. However you will need to log into your own Netflix/Max/Disney+ etc. accounts. We find guests prefer to have access to their own content during their stay.

If mapping to the house on a phone, be advised that the directions given are often wrong: When headed to 162 Glassy wy, if the app tells you to turn on Loye ln at the end, this is incorrect - no access this way. Instead, approx 1/4 mile west (closer to freeway) of Loye ln you'll see the road Glassy wy. Turn up this road and head to the top. The mirror house will be to the left at the top of the Glassy wy.
