Treehugger: Prefab A-frame wooden cabins are made for eco-friendly glamping

From the bloggers at Treehugger

Economical and easy to build, A-frame structures enjoyed a period of popularity during the fifties and sixties as one easy way middle-class families could build a vacation home of their own. They are now making a bit of a comeback, as larger modernized homes, or as re-interpreted cottages. Keeping with the original spirit of the A-frame cottage, Slovenian company Lushna offers their prefab version made for eco-friendly glamping (“glamourous camping”), great for those who want to camp year-round, even in winter, or do away with camping tents that can flood.

Measuring 13′ by 13′ and 11.5′ high, the 110-square-foot Lushna Villa is made with naturally untreated, exterior-grade larch wood, while the floor is made from spruce. It comes with “ecological insulation” (no word on what kind), an integrated ventilation system, panoramic glass wall or mosquito netting, and electrical outlets. It is installed with ground screws, negating the need for a carbon-intensive, concrete foundation. It fits a king-size bed, which looks comfy indeed.
