Pining for the simple life? CU user lamar5292 used to, but now he lives in this 400-square-foot cabin in Cedarville, Utah year-round. Note the solar panels — you can read about the thin-film photovoltaic solar roof system on Editor in Chief Cheryl Long's barn in Easy Solar Power.

Don't forget to submit your photos to our CU photo-sharing website. Maybe one of your favorite moments will pop up on the homepage for all the world to see!
