I went to the Ottawa Home and Garden Show yesterday and despite finding most of it boring, there was one thing I saw that made it worthwhile. There was this incredible little cabin set up called the ATC (all-terrain cabin), designed using the standard ISO shipping container as the basis for the structure and outfitted totally with Canadian design and technology. The container unfolds to give 480sf of living space. It was designed by BARK, a British Columbia registered non-profit collective of designers and businesses committed to raising the profile of Canadian design and ingenuity internationally. I want one – BAD. And I would have taken my own photos of it but there must have been half a million people crowded around it. Luckily their website had some great photos (except they don’t have one of the cutest little bedroom ever, with a murphy bed).

Now if this had wheels I’d take up caravaning. This is my idea of a camping weekend. LOL.

This is incredible. I love the whole prefab concept and especially creative designs with shipping containers, as it makes so much sense in terms of portability. The design is amazing on this one. Love it!

It has a very organic look to it. It’s very cool. LOVE the kitchen! I think it’s all very well done.

I know it’s early, but now I know what I want for Christmas!

Maybe I’ll try asking for this for Christmas too!!! 😉 Seriously though, I can’t stop thinking about this cabin – not only is it so damn cute but the finishings are really modern and fabulous. *sigh*
