They are after all framed and built-to-order with wood by a carpenter, just like a stationary cabin. Wheelhaus is currently offering three models, The Caboose that has a loft for sleeping, the pitched-roof Rail Car model, & the Airstream-inspired Silo. Delivered to anywhere you want all ready to be patched into plumbing and power.

The Tool Chess Set is handmade in Michigan, USA using basic hardware store nuts & bolts and comes in a metal toolbox carrying case. It’s a clever idea & if you lose a game piece, replacing it would be as simple as a trip to the nuts & bolts aisle at your local store.
If your bedmate is a human sawmill, the Snore Activated Pillow will be a lifesaver. Theirs. The pillow has an integrated microphone that picks up the sonic vibrations of snoring & automatically inflates, giving the snorer a little nudge to roll over and shut the hell up.
With looks that bring to mind your old Boy Scout watch or dad’s classic Timex, the Corvid Field Watch is a no-nonsense timepiece from Aevig, a new brand based in the Netherlands. It’s powered by a Ronda 703 quartz movement and is available with tan, black, or green dials. via
