Awesomely Creative Abodes

Post by daisymaybee » Thu Dec 29, 2016 10:23 pm

Did you create an amazing temporary home on playa? Was it filled with pillows? Drapery? Decorations galore? Were you so proud of it that you thought you might qualify for an award - "Most fabulous abode"?

If you have a photo to share and might like it to be included in a new project that is coming together for 2017-

We build a two room air-conditioned HexaYurt. The bedroom is literally dust free with a king size bed and mood lighting and an instant on hot water shower. Nothing too fancy, but it sure is a comfy escape.

Thinking of creating a one time event (daytime) called "BRC Tour of Homes".
Totally tongue in cheek/mobile cocktail party where we dress up and check out colorful living rooms of the most bohemian style.
Got some ideas? Is this the right place to post such a thing?

Great, Paperman! That is just what we have in mind!
There will be awards, yes! I am hoping to get there a bit early so I can get photos of contenders.
Please stay in touch. At this point it is looking like Silicon Village may be home to the "BRC Tour of Homes".

You can send info to brctourofhomes@gmail.com.

I bought a Kodiak tent at a great price this past fall (thanks just Joe)

I'm hoping to deck out the inside with big pillows and pretty colored fabrics. In my mind it will look like the inside of I Dream of Jeannies bottle.

In reality it will be dusty and a hot mess :shock:
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Only photos i have are on my dead pad device. How ever if it ever stops raining I set it up and photo it. Need to repaint it as it has been rebuilt. Some ran over it with a truck, :( Would love to make a couple more simular shelters for my camp and invite newbies to stay. Like a plug and play but as a gift and with out showers just shelter.

The design of the Black Rock City Tour of Homes Display is ready to build and now I am needing more photos.
Consider sending a good quality picture to me at brctourofhomes@gmail.com.

As this is coming together, I think that the focus will be on the living room or shared space- of-course, we are open to all creative ideas.
There will be a grand event on Thursday afternoon and hopefully we will enlist an artcar to transport a lovely group of decked out
attendees. Ribbons and prizes will be awarded and cocktails served.
If this sounds like an activity or camp you would like to be part of contact me soon.
We will be located in Silicon Village in a camp called Black Rock City Tour of Homes.

you'll need to do some scrolling
last entry was from 2015,
but a great history of on-playa architecture

Is this more like a fantasy home description thing, or a mtv Cribs: BRC edition? I.e. check out our solar setup and our grey water vap o tron? Nearby is sextant's buzzing tribute to tesla...
