Admire the Cool Architecture During a Jacksonhole WY Getaway: Rolling Huts-Style Cabins by Wheel Haus at the Fireside Resort

My family had the pleasure of staying in the Kundig designed Rolling Huts this past summer in Mazama, WA.  The architecture and Methow vistas were incredible.  The huts?   They are an inspiring example of small, efficient and gorgeous spaces.

Wheel Haus produces structures similar to the Rolling Huts.  Treat yourself to a Wyoming getaway and stay in one at the Fireside Resort.  Here's a link to them. I have info on their special rates.  Or, book a cross country ski holiday in Mazama and stay in one of the Rolling Huts.  I can fill you in on what to bring.

And when you return, let's take a look at vacant lots where you can plop down your own rolling cabin.  Perhaps somewhere like here on Bainbridge Island?
