To help you avoid getting dreadlocks as you live off the land, the Japanese architectural brand Muji has the Muji Hut to meet your essential living needs. Best of all, because it's a prefabricated habitat, all you have to do is tell Muji where you want it dropped off, and by the time you get there, your Hut will be up and running, ready to be called you home.
Now, if you're aware of Japanese living, you know that they like to keep things as simple as possible, and the Hut is no exception. The interior isn't furnished with anything other than a bed, a lamp for lighting, and a wood-burning stove for heating, possibly cooking. Talk about eco-friendly. Because all it offers is a place to rest your head, the level of intrusion upon the environment should be minimal.
This building technique is known as Yakisugi or Shou Sugi Ban, and if properly carried out, this procedure yields a pest, rot, and fire-resistant structure. Did I mention that it also functions as a natural water repellent and light-reflecting surface? It looks good too. Since this method is best applied to cedar, Muji held true to traditions, and the cedar grain is visible on the Hut's interior. This also means you can decorate it to your liking. Why not leave it bare.
Now, after a day's drive, you and your significant other have arrived at your blackened home sitting atop some hill. Because one wall is composed mainly of glass, natural light floods the space and illuminates the raw cedar I mentioned. At the entry into your habitat, a deck integrated into the Hut's construction awaits dirty shoes, clothing, and gear and is even suitable for a little coffee table and a couple of chairs. Imagine your mornings living out of this mobile home.
At the end of the day, Muji is asking ¥3,000,000 for this chic yet straightforward home, which isn't bad considering that equates to roughly $23,104 (at current exchange rates). A pretty neat price for a home that meets the simple needs and pleasures of the off-grid life.
