The project of The Backcountry Hut Company is inspired by the idea of the creator of Ikea. Its objective is to achieve constructions that are easy to build with prefabricated pieces.
Michael Leckie along with Wilson Edgar and Cyrill Werlen founded The Backcountry Hut Company with the intention of reaching as many people as possible. The house is made of wood modular elements prefabricated, easy to assemble and do not require too much labor. Self-construction and sustainability are the determining factors of the construction style of the Backcountry Hut Company.
