Better Than a Tent

shanty-front

I love this little 8’x8′ shanty on the banks of the New River in the mountains of North Carolina. Jeff and his wife bought a bit of property and after months of tent camping decided to build the a structure that would not require a permit. Sounds familiar. It was months of tent camping that finally drove M&I to build our 10×10. There are no plans to go along with the exterior photos of Jeff’s tiny structure, but somehow they have a toilet, a queen sized bed and a flat screen TV in there. It is solar powered and apparently stays warm enough for them to stay there in the winter. We are still working on insulation for our cabin, so I am not sure we will be able to brave the upstate NY winters but I can tell you that I don’t miss the tent camping at all!
