This might just be the perfect weekend retreat, especially if you’re into minimal stuff. And why wouldn’t you be since you really have all you need to a quiet weekend away from the busy city life. But if you’re planning on building one as a DIY project (like this one here was made), make sure you’re no gadget loving geek or prepare to pack those sun-charging batteries as The Shack has no electricity. And quite frankly it doesn’t really need it! Why ruin everything with a TV set when you can enjoy reading a good book at the oil lamps’ light.

The Shack was built by Broadhurst Architects from Washington D.C. as a logical step between tent camping, and the yet unrealized weekend cottage.
