Kat Allen grew up with a love for art, writing, and the outdoors in the small northern town of Stephen, Minnesota. She received a B.F.A. from Savannah College of Art & Design and studied fine art in Florence, Italy. A career in marketing and design led Kat to Chicago, and later Milwaukee, before setting down in a rural setting to raise her family and continue working as an artist, author, and illustrator.

Glass Roof Earth Homes


Energizing & Efficient Homes for Northern Territories
Glass roof earth homes are for northern people who enjoy light.

  • New areas of operation

A home in the earth was the human's first home. Caves, holes... Half-lit or completely dark. Yet, protected. Efficient for the seasons. A place to contemplate life. A place for innovative thought, a place such as Lascaux–where light from fires inspired stories and sparked the first forms of art. Imagine what the brilliant light coming in from a glass roof would do for an earth home... The people living in the far north are a mythical, magical sort of human, to say the least. Energized by cold isolation and inspired by the most fierce outdoors. In the future, I believe more people will want to escape to the north, as the median world will grow more congested... People will need to spread out across the earth once more, as they did at the very beginning. But the time to dwell in caves has past. People are now too enlightened to live in the dark.
