The Glass Cabin of Nick Olson and Lilah Horwitz

View all 1 Photos

What are your dreams? Have you set out to claim them? Or maybe put them on a shelf for another season in life? Those wild hearted dreams of yours may never have their place in grown up life…unless you live for the now, for the today, for the “why the heck not” like Nick Olson and Lilah Horwitz. This video clip by Matt Glass and Jordan Wayne Long tells the tale laced with vintage undertones. Set in the mountains of West Virginia, this couple has built a get-away-from-it-all studio using salvaged windows and old repurposed plank flooring. They live in perfect harmony with the view all around them, hence the wall of windows that capture every last crest of the horizon, the pond, the hills, the trees. Even in their trades, they seek to create what they enjoy. The home was built with their own hands, their clothes crafted one stitch at a time, even the camera and all its functioning parts were put together by hand. And so if you need them, they’ll be enjoying their bungalow without worries and with the greatest satisfaction that comes with pursuing a dream.



Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
