    hope there is an air space behind the tin heat shield…

  • Lovely wagon! Do you have other photos that you could share? I’m building a similarly sized/purposed space for farm apprentice housing this spring, and I’d love to see more details of your design.


    • Hey, yeah I have plenty of pictures from the ground up. What kind would you like? I am happy to share whatever. If you are a new englander come on by. We have trailer changes and construction photos.

        Clara — is there anyway you can email some additional photos, especially anything having to do with the beginning stages of the build? That would be so fantastic!

        Thanks much

    Lovely, but I just couldn’t have the inside all white with the Snow outside, I would go snowblind!

  • Ruth V. says:

    I love the cooking/heating stove. Just perfect. Is there cold storage outside for food, and do you switch to ice boxes in the summer? The only thing that I would have trouble with is crawling over my husband (or he over me) to get in and out of bed. But – I could fix that!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Clara says:

      Yes, that is a pain, but if you sleep on the inside, you have to make him get up and tend the fire! it was *clearly* great planning on my part…

  • Thanks Clara

    I have a website for my Christmas tree farm in western mass, Contact info for me there.

    I’m interested in all of it. I built The Bahamas, posted a month or so ago. Building a small hut on wheels for my you-cut grove now, got another client lined up. I have my way of building things, but I like your style, and would love to see the choices you made. I’d also love to come see it, if you’re within an hour an a half. That doesn’t get me much north of Brattleboro, though, so chances are slim you’re within range.

    Please email me, and we can take it from there. Thanks,

    What a nice and simply layout, I’m really loving it. The white walls/ceiling and dark floor are a nice look compared to a lot of wagons that have an all plain wood interior (they’re like pine or something), which can be a little overpowering. This is one of my favourite wagons that I’ve seen.
    What are the dimensions of your wagon? I’m thinking about building something similar to this as a small float house. If you have some photos from when you were building your roof, I would really be interested in seeing those.
    Thanks, Jeff.

    • Clara says:

      Well I can tell you that the roof was a pain, and you have to be someone who isn’t easily brought to frustrated tears. (which I was…brought to tears…) Do you know where I can continue to post pictures? I have plenty of the building

    No Bling Bling here which is so refreshing. Nice simple, modest & practical design, with the extremes of winter you are thankful and happy to have shelter, a place to lay your hat and warmth. Spending Winter in Northern Hokkaido Japan I can relate to this picture…Thank you.

  • Tim says:

    Very nice build. Love it.

  • Holliday says:

    Really great. Please check your woodstove connections, you adapter where you increase in size is improperly installed. As the pipe goes up all joints should fit into the one above it . You can die from carbon monoxide gas . Don’t take any chances with your safety.
