The modular design of the hut allows you to increase the space as much as you like. The base model measures 191 square feet (studio loft: sleeps 2-4 people) and has a covered entry front.
EASY TO ASSEMBLE
THE HUT IN THE IKEA BOX
The Backcountry Hut is designed for flexibility in recreational use, suitable for the outdoor enthusiast, outdoor clubs, alpine associations, and backcountry lodge operators. The Hut is designed for a more accessible construction of temporary or full-time residence and operation in remote areas, with the idea that it is easy to assemble through a collective 'barn-raising' process. The design is adaptable to larger groups of people or for individuals, and is suitable for small communities interested in the principles of self-assembly housing.
A prefabricated core minimizes the carbon footprint and site imprint of the structural assembly. Prefabrication allows for an economy and conservation of material and energy usage in the production and assembly of the building components. Each component is flat-packed onto pallets for shipping to a location close to the site, then transported via air or off-road vehicles. Site preparation requires no use of heavy machinery for minimal site disruption. Piling holes are hand-dug and concrete is poured into sonotubes to form piles for the foundation.
DIFFERENT INTERIORS FOR DIFFERENT PURPOSES
The hut can serve different purposes: you can set it up as a backcountry hut for outdoor groups or you can use it as a front-country hut for personal usage. The basic shell consists of 4 posts, 4 beams and a roof.
