Rolling Huts

There's something really appealing about mobile homes. While we may not all be enthusiastic about hauling a giant RV around the countryside, it's nice to have a change of scenery from time to time. These Rolling Huts by Tom Kundig of Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects are a great example of pared-down, portable living.

Created for Michal Friedrich, owner of Delta Shelter (below), a home on stilts in Mazama, Washington, the Rolling Huts were built as guest houses to accompany it. They're as simple as Henry David Thoreau ever imagined, but set on wheeled legs six feet above the ground, for an extra twist.

They're grouped like a small herd and housed within a licensed campground, so they're still a bit like RVs but way cooler to look at. As with most campsites, the bathrooms are a walk away – in the nearby barn. A small price to pay. RM

    Ya, This is a nice idea, these guys are pretty smart, the problem is retail value+= increasing passivity to retail sales, not really delivering. Oh, does this mean I can’t understand this culture or am I not apt or not been taught? No, it simply means I have not been shown.
