House of Three Tents

Here’s another amazing Faircompanies video.

“When Glen and Gerry bought property in Northern California, they wanted first to live on the land to determine the best place to site their home. They found a company that makes tent cabins and erected three. They’re not of the camping variety, but more semi-permanent fabric shelters sold by Sweetwater Bungalows.

The living/dining room tent was an A La Carte option where they paid $5200 for a DIY setup: this includes the shell and rain fly and eave and awning system. The couple had to find their own lumber for framing the 14 by 20 foot room. They cut holes in the fabric to fit french doors and the salvaged windows they’d found.

The bedroom and guest bedroom tents are smaller (12 x 14), but large enough to fit standard beds and completely floored with plywood. These kits come complete with frame, windows and door pricing at $6100, not including the platforms which the customer builds themselves with plans supplied by Sweetwater Bungalows.”

  1. I am a huge fan of outdoor kitchens. Each one I have ever seen is different, but they all seem to have some things in common as well.

    I’m not sure where the semantic line of demarcation is between a casual grilling area, and an outdoor kitchen. It’s a very fuzzy line.

    I guess I tend to think an outdoor cooking area becomes an outdoor kitchen when there are countertops, storage, and a sink. It seems to me that when someone installs those features, they are serious about cooking as many meals outside as they possibly can.

    Others may disagree. Some may think that a backpacker’s ultralight stove, and a mess kit are a complete outdoor kitchen. They may be correct as well.

    Argue about semantics all you want, but one thing is clear to me. When someone wants to cook all their meals outside, and creates a space to accomplish that, they have created an outdoor kitchen. When it becomes EASY to cook outside, it changes the way someone lives. For the better, in my opinion.
