Burning man designed shacks/huts/forts/cabins- video....

Post by Deek » Thu Jun 03, 2010 12:50 pm

SOME BURNINGMAN-esque porta-shacks....

Was told by several friends that I should toss the link to this video up here....its of a shack I specifically built with Burningman and likeminded festivals in mind. Portable, lightweight, easy to build- and its multi-purposed (shed, sleeper, rolling office, greenhouse, sauna, chicken coop).
Anyway, for what its worth, you might get a kick out of it, and I'd LOVE to see some photos/idea/structures from others.

and another recycled-material shack I built (it rolls too, although its a little bigger- and more comical)

Pretty interesting and nice work. These are only usefull if I was building something for my kids. No way I'm building something like this in the desert nor would I tow it out there.

The structure on the first one is so light it might not be good for the Playa. I guess you could secure it to the ground somehow but it definately wouldn't fit in my car. LOL. Neat though.

I'd like to see these things, so pls post a still image or three. Video is an inconvenient option most days (spkg for myself only, of course). Thank you.
