Imagine living in a home where there is a view in every room, there is always an abundance of natural light and you feel as if you are living in the outdoors.  This is what it is like to live in a glass house.  Now, there is the figurative meaning of the words living in a glass house, but this is about literally living in a house made of glass.  Here are homes that will inspire you and give you a glimpse into life in a glass house.

Living in a glass house certainly has its challenges.  Privacy is a major issue unless the home is built on a lot hidden from major populated areas.  As for the interior, many glass homes have interior walls of traditional materials to provide selective barriers throughout.  These walls blend quite beautifully with the glass exterior walls.

The glass house provides a good level of heat in the winter, given the solar capabilities of glass.  There is less need for traditional building materials, thus creating a structure that is economical and environmentally savvy.

The aesthetics are undeniable.  A glass house seen from the exterior is an impressive feat of architecture.  They are beautiful and blend in so well to their environment.  Imagine living life open while nestled in a wooded sanctuary, situated cliff-side in the mountains, or right on the beach.  The views are spectacular.
