First, I have nothing to do with this property - just saw it on another site and thought some here might find it interesting!

The post I saw said this small A-frame cost about $700 to build. It's being advertised as an off-grid glamping getaway in beautiful country, and renting for a decent amount on AirBNB.

Seems like a nice way to bring some income to a larger property while you're trying to get your permaculture systems off the ground!

Does anyone at Wheaton Labs know of this property? Sounds like it's not too far away!

Hey Darren,

My name is Garrett and I built this with my wife.  I don't know where Weaton Labs are, but I'm pretty sure he is in Missoula -- just a stone's throw away from us!  Anyways, should you find yourself near, shoot us a message and we will give you the grand tour!

Here is a recent feature Zillow did on us.

Garret, I have a question:
How is the temperature inside during the night? I don't see thermal storage and the surface/volume ration is pretty high. Or is it heated body heat?

Since we knew it was just going to be occupied in the late spring to early fall, we didn't equip the unit with a heating source or pay much mind to thermal storage.  We did, however, leave permanent screened openings on both gable sides to all hot air to evacuate during the hot summer afternoons. There's also a cute little 12v ceiling fan that speeds up the process.  
 
We should throw him a surprise party. It will cheer him up. We can use this tiny ad:
