The Backcountry Hut Company
The idea of building your very own cabin in the woods is a dream for many an outdoor enthusiast, and the Backcountry Hut Company exists to make that dream a reality. Vancouver-based Leckie Studio Architecture + Design founded the Backcountry Hut Company in 2016 as an offshoot of their business. Inspired by the accessibility and clean design of IKEA, they conceived easy-to-install huts to be easily constructed from a wood post-and-beam frame and then filled out with prefabricated panels and a nail-on window system.
There are two distinct models: the more urban-minded Frontcountry and the more simple Backcountry—both are designed to be installed anywhere accessible by truck or, in some cases, helicopter.
Afraid your cabin will look like your neighbors? Not to worry: The exterior is made from prefabricated parts, but interiors can be customized either with design recommendations from the Backcountry Hut Company or by designing the space yourself. And based on your choice of the Frontcountry or Backcountry structure, as well as how much room you need, you can combine multiple 10-foot units to give yourself more square footage. Prices start at $44,000, and if you’re interested in learning more, you can contact the Backcountry Hut Company here. Meanwhile, we’ll be on the lookout for a perfect spot for our cabin.
