Sunset has the story on this off-grid, low-impact, affordable shelter built in the wilderness near Joseph, Oregon. The modern structure of 130 square feet, not counting the deck, was designed by Ryan Lingard and built in a couple weeks for roughly $10,000. Signal Shed has a wood stove, metal roof, cedar rainscreen, reused windows, portable toilet, and operable shutters.
