The Modern (Mobile) Cabin
This week, the design-minded corners of the web have been abuzz about this natural wood beauty. Dubbed the Escape, it's a handsome RV disguised as a charming cabin. Handcrafted in Wisconsin and clad in sustainably harvested timber inside and out, this 400 square-foot RV can be moved as necessary and parked just about anywhere (eschewing property taxes).
Made from sustainable materials, the environmentally and energy conscious cabin consumes an average of $30 worth of power a month (even with an electric water heater). But that's not to say that the conditions aren't plush. Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's celebrated attention to detail, the Escape comes with vaulted ceilings, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, heated tile floors in the bathroom, a fireplace with built in flat screen TV and a shocking amount of storage.
So how much is it? Well, about the same cost as a Range Rover, but that's pretty reasonable considering it's a viable vacation home.
