Life in a Roving Cabin Is the Ultimate Form of Working From Home

07 January 2016

One in five Americans worked from home last year. Maybe you’re one of them. Maybe you soon will be.

The future of telecommuting is a bright, efficient and underwear-clad one, its impacts on the way we live numerous and liberating. Like: the fact that you can live pretty much wherever you want — including on the road.

That’s the M.O. of newlyweds Brian and Joni Buzarde, who recently built themselves a cabin on wheels to complement their upwardly — and continentally — mobile lifestyle, as they shared with Dwell. Their  236-square-foot trailer-cabin (“Woody”) cost about $50,000 to build, measures 13.5 feet at its tallest point, and is fully highway ready.

Although the cedar-paneled cabin is presently stationed in the Rockies of Colorado (after traveling about 1,000 miles from Austin), its birch-veneer plywood interior is anything but rustic. The Buzardes and their dog are “roughing it” with four full rooms, insulated walls, myriad storage compartments, a 55-inch flatscreen TV and a cow-trough bathtub for good measure.

Not a bad way to roll.
