Why A Man Gave Up The “American Dream” For A Hand-Built Cabin With No Power Or Running Water

There’s no place like home. It’s where we live, work and dream. It’s our sanctuary and our refuge. We can love them or hate them. It can be just for the night or for the rest of our lives. But whoever we may be, we all have a place we call home.

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE is a series of short films that explore the idea of home; what makes them, how they represent us, why we need them.

Artist John Coffer had it all. A good-paying job, a nice house with a swimming pool, a sports car, and everything else you commonly associate with a “successful” life.

But over 25 years ago he gave it all up for a hand-built house with no power and a hand-drawn well.
