When Mariah Morrow and Ryan Lingard saw an ad in the Joseph, Oregon local paper for a $47,000, 100- by 150-foot parcel of land, they lit up.
"Where most people would have seen a steep, partially burned, partially logged slope that didn’t have utilities, we just saw possibilities," Mariah recalls.
The Signal Shed, as they've dubbed their miniature wilderness outpost, was designed by Lingard, who is an architect by trade. At just 130 square feet plus a deck, the cozy adventure outpost has a clear view of Wallowa Lake.
This fantastic piece of micro architecture was recently awarded a 2011 Residential Architect Magazine design award.
