Spectacular Modern CAVE HOUSE Is Man’s Lifelong Dream – 5,700 sq ft

If you’ve read some of our other posts, people looking to break away from the urban property mold typically explore off-grid ideas such as cabins in the great outdoors, modified / repurposed shipping containers, or self-sufficient Earthships. Well, Grant Johnson—from Moab, Utah—had a different idea.

A REALLY different idea. This is something else!

After several years of living off-grid in a trailer on his 40 acre property, Grant got to fulfil his lifelong dream. As covered in this video by the Tiny House Giant Journey YouTube channel, the Utah man went the astonishing route of blasting through a vast bedrock mound on his land to create a 5,700 square foot modern cave house!

The house is a wide open space filled with most of your typical household amenities, water pumped from a nearby pond, turbine-generated electricity, and even satellite internet. As with any other true off-grid living arrangement, he grows his own food and raises farm animals in the property.

Grant was careful to respect nature by molding the house design around the natural elements of the bedrock. As a testament to his appreciation of natural beauty, all openings to the cave are glass panes for an unobstructed view of the rustic countryside. Even the furniture is designed to complement the existing rough arches of the walls. The end result is an astonishing blend of clean, modern architecture and a liberating, organic aesthetic.

If you’d like to explore the innovative modern cave house and natural beauty of the land it’s built from, you can rent a two-bedroom/one-bathroom apartment in the cave house on Airbnb. I’ll bet they are totally booked out, seeing as this video got over 3 million views in just over a year of being online. 🙂

Grant even has a jam room, where he often invites guests for a music session.
