Buying your dream house is always a major process. Even if you try to do your best to go through this journey, there are always some stressful moments. But if you are the type of person who wants a tranquil existence in a remote place, or simply, just a place where you are just happy, there is a new option to enjoy a simpler and more affordable house. The Back Country Hut Company (BHC) presents the ‘Affordable Flat-Pack Surf Shack Shelter’.

One can literally move to the middle of nowhere for cheap with these new ‘like Ikea’ house. They are tiny prefabricated homes that you can place and assemble in much the same way as your favorite IKEA furniture. First, it doesn’t require any heavy machinery. Second, once all of the customized components of your tiny house are created, they’re place into a flat-packed pallets. Third, bring your family and friends because it is easy to transport and assemble it.

Choose Your Size 

The modular design of the hut allows you to increase the space as much as you like. The pre-fab structures starting at $45,000 come in various sizes – from 191 square feet to 937 square feet – with the largest housing up to 24 people.

The Backcountry Hut Company was founded by the Vancouver -base Leckie Studio Architecture + Design with the mission to assist individuals and organizations in the design and construction of affordable outdoor recreation structures.

Founders Wilson Edgar and Michael Leckie based the company’s ethos on the IKEA model of providing affordable, well-designed products for the masses. Instead of providing flexible furniture for tiny apartments, however, the BHC focuses on creating simple, recreational structures that can be installed in virtually any remote location.

The design is adaptable to larger groups of people or for individuals, and is suitable for small communities interested in the principles of self-assembly housing.

The new Surf Shack is a flat-packed system ready to be assembled on site. The “kit of parts” consists of an engineered wood post-and-beam skeleton infilled with prefabricated panels, and an easy nail-on window system.
