In honor of Escapes Month, we spent last week up in the woods of Sonoma County. Our lodgings? Tent cabins, which we think are a brilliant blend of permanent and temporary structures.
The tent cabins are simple wooden frames built on top of decks that are then topped with a canvas cover. While they don't offer much more warmth or protection than a regular tent does, they're certainly easier to move around in (the ceilings are a little over seven feet tall) and give you a wooden deck floor instead of just dirt.
We know these would be relatively inexpensive to build, and so always keep them in the back of our heads for that fantasy piece of land we'll someday own . . .
