The Swamp Hut
The Swamp Hut comfortably sleeps four in the two sleeping huts. “It’s glorified camping,” Moskow says, however, they follow standard backpacking rules of “pack in, pack out,” bringing with them their own supply of water and nonperishable foods and carrying out their trash at the end of a trip.
The structure covers 580 square feet. Moskow and Linn prefabricated the 12-foot-high trusses and carried them–along with the additional two-by-fours, galvanized-steel connectors, and aluminum and fiberglass roof panels–to the site, which could only be accessed on foot by following a 500-foot circuitous path through the wooded site.
The shape of the prefabricated trusses was inspired by sails and Moskow’s father-in-law’s love for boating. The collection of shelters is reminiscent of days past when groups of covered wagons traveled West.
