The Watershed, a 70-square-foot, off the grid writer’s retreat in Wren, Oregon, USA designed by Erin Moore.
Professor and nature writer Kathleen Dean Moore wanted a studio in which to write and observe the wetland ecosystem on the banks of the Marys River. Calling on the design expertise of an architect daughter, the carpentry skills of her husband, the labor of friends, and a front loader, she erected The Watershed in 2007.
