Introducing “Shepherd’s Wagon”
Now here’s a throwback style awe-inspiring tiny home on wheels, designed by the crew at Gute. The compact structure is refreshing in its simplicity, and sells for a mere $23,098 USD. The exterior has beautiful rounded edges and it is gracefully crafted out of fine wood. It is referred as “Shepherd’s Wagon,” as the designers derived the inspiration from those old shepherd’s mobile residences.
Shepherd wagons of yore were homes that sheepherders brought along on their travels. We’ve seen contemporary variations of these to converted shepherd’s wagons covered with canvas and actually used as rustic living spaces. Ontario-based Canadian builder Güte (previously) constructed this lovely specimen that seems to be a cross between a shepherd’s wagon, a camper and modernist tiny home. Dubbed the Collingwood, it sports rounded surfaces and nice, clean wooden surfaces inside. There are thermal-paned windows that open, a solid oak dutch door, cast-iron wheels, traditional cast-iron push hardware and brass window locks, cedar shingles and steel roof cladding. It has two electrical outlets, and can be plugged in via the exterior. But there’s a lot of camper-ish inspirations here too, as evidenced by the classic dining-table-turns-into-bed gambit.
