This versatile type of construction is the brainchild of Olson Kundig Architects.  The construction can be added a property with land, for additional accommodation and moved into place thanks to the wheeled base, or for a more up-scale camping experience.  The project was completed in 2007 and they are being used right now by the company Rolling Huts in a camping setting.  They are not cheap as they cost $135 per night for 2 people.  We will put more information under the images in the article.  To get the best effect, once in the article you can enlarge the image by pressing it (not the first one).

The Rolling Huts, are located in Washington's Methow Valley and they say that these structures provide a modern alternative to camping.  From the pictures you can see that it is a year round habitable structure.  The Huts come with a small refrigerator, microwave, fireplace and Wi-Fi. It sleeps 2 people, and modular furniture in the living area that can be reconfigured to sleep two more.  There is a water faucet and a Chemical toilet outside each Hut.   The Toilet and Shower facilities are  housed in a barn just down the road.  Not a trip that sounds too cosy in the winter.  This structure comes into its own when compared to a Tent rather than to a House / Home, they are nice and simple but full of light and warmth.
