When the sun goes down, a thermal curtain helps keep the heat in. The cabin is supported by a 4kW solar array mounted on the walls to keep snow from covering it. The array supplies basic electricity for the occupants of course, but the designers also intend to heat the cabin with an under-floor heating system."

Rather than settling on the comfort of raw bedrock, they took to constructing a building from wood boards reclaimed from a nearby shed that had been destroyed. Getting the materials onto the rock was no easy task — the wood was brought over by boat or kayak, and heftier pieces were taken upstream and left to float downstream where they were caught by the boys on the rock.” No weather conditions have been able to take this house down!"
