William and Daniel Yudchitz have a family business, and that's architecture. The father-son duo wanted to create something together that would honor their skills and values, and also fit into the natural world. Treehugger reports that they decided to build a modular cabin near Lake Superior that was both energy efficient and sourced as sustainably as possible.

They called the project E.D.G.E. which is short for Experimental Dwelling for a Greener Environment. E.D.G.E. only covers 340 square feet, and the philosophy behind the construction is that it be an "experimental minimalist structure" that aims to "meet basic human needs while still providing a qualitatively rich life." William Yudchitz wrote in Archdaily that the hope was that the cabin could be an education tool on how people can live sustainably, yet still comfortably.
