The so-called Collingwood cabin was created by the Canadian builder GÃ¼te. It was inspired by shepherd wagons of the past, while it also bears all the hallmarks of a camper, and a modern tiny home. Itâ€™s mostly made of wood, and can sleep a whole family, so itâ€™s a great choice for any eco-conscious glamping enthusiast.
The Collingwood is very well insulated and weatherproofed. The roof is basically wrapped all around the hut, while they used cedar shingles and steel for cladding the roof and walls to protect against all types of weather. The walls are also very well insulated using batt insulation, as well as waterproofed.
The hut also features fairly large thermal-paned, fully-operable windows, which let in ample amount of daylight and aid in ventilation. The door is made of oak, while the cast-iron wheels offer a nice rustic touch. The cabin needs an external electricity source though. It would be nice if it was also equipped to be taken off-the-grid.
The Collingwood is a 15-foot cabin, but it can easily fit a family of 4, due to a bunk bed set up, as well as a dining area, which can be turned into a bed. There is also a storage compartment under the bunk bed, which rolls out and could also be used as a bed if needed. To maximize available living space, the builders installed a wall unit, which houses all the necessary storage areas as well as a fold down table.
There is, unfortunately, no bathroom or kitchen in this hut, both of which would make it a lot more attractive. As it is, the Collingwood is basically a more unique version of the classic camper, and built from more sustainable materials. The basic model costs $23,098.
