$300 Pyramid Shelter

Post image for $300 Pyramid Shelter

I wrote about Paul’s bicycle camper in this post about Pedal-Powered Tiny Homes, and he’s just written me to share his latest project: another shelter for Burning
Man, though this time, not just for himself, but for he and his wife.

Heat and wind are the primary elements that any shelter erected in Black Rock City has to withstand. This 12×12 pyramid has been tested for almost two months, and so far so good.

Adapted from the hexayurt design, using quality insulative foam board and tape, Paul has created a lightweight, sturdy and cool temporary shelter for about $300.

Watch the YouTube video for a tour and more pictures on his website.

I’ve been following Paul’s work for a while.
Paul is a genuine artist AND a poet too

Yes his little shelters and vehicle designs are great! I look forward to seeing more of them.
