f you have land around forest, why do not you build a cottage? Build with very modern, minimalist and futuristic design. For in the front of the cottage besides walls, you can put the glasses as a wall replacement.
And for the position and furniture arrangement just make it simple and minimalist so the looks will see so dynamic. At night, do not forget to turn on the lamp in every room, because for sure will be so dark if you not turn it on.
If you want to have a different cottage, these pictures above can be the guidance. Have a try!
