Relive Your Oregon Trail Dreams in This Tiny Backyard Hut


Nineteenth-century pioneer life never looked quite this good, but cult followers of the best video game ever (aka the Oregon Trail) will love this tiny, covered-wagon inspired mobile home from Ontario-based Gute designs. Created to be used as a studio, den, ski shack, extra bedroom, playroom, or home office, the Collingwood Shepherd Hut is a handcrafted modular house set atop cast iron wheels. The solid lumber siding and red cedar shingles are cute, but inside is where this micro cabin shines with soft natural pine and built-in wooden furnishings. Customizable designs allow for fireplaces, converting beds, and plenty of color choices. Want a solid hardwood desk that folds away to become a small shelf? The Collingwood has it. It can even be built with a set of 3 bunk beds configured as two extra tall single beds and a slide-out short bed. Just don't forget the exterior hurricane lamp or the all-brass welsh miners lamp, two crucial tools for treating that vicious snakebite or feeding your oxen at night.
