Pre-fabricated surf shacks are a new trend in off-grid living.
In recent years, more and more people have decided to adopt the off-grid lifestyle. There are tons of options nowadays for people who are bored with traditional housing options, from portable tiny houses to flat-pack IKEA homes that you can assemble on your own (if you are the type of person who can assemble IKEA products without incident).
A Canadian company called Backcountry Hut Company has created their own contribution to this trend with surf shacks that can be built on any terrain, air-dropped by helicopter for assembly.
The homes are totally customizable ranging in size from 191 and 937 square-feet. The largest option can house up to 24 people, which is much more than a typical home. New homeowners can either choose from a selection of interior options, or design their own, and the entire structure can be assembled in less than a week, since they don’t require any heavy foundations or machinery.
The idea behind these homes is that clients can place them in remote places, for a getaway from society, and all the buildings were designed to have as little impact on the environment as possible.
The surf shacks start at $45,000, so if you are looking for a non-traditional solution to your home-buying needs and interested in living off the grid, I foresee a pre-fabricated surf shack in your immediate future.via ]
