Outdoor/Indoor Sleeping

Lew discovered this great sleeping platform on https://thistinyhouse.com. I traced it back to https://is.gd/eFdz4, but there’s no indication of where it is, or who shot the photo. I might just build something like this. The roof keeps fog and dew off the bed, yet the steep angle allows you to see a lot of the sky. Can anyone track this down?

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. Hello, I knew I'd seen this image before, and with a bit of digging found it in my copy of a Sunset book: Ideas for Great Backyard Cottages. It is designed by Tim Prentice. After Google-ing him, I see he is an architect and artist who has fantastic kinetic sculptures on his site…
    Best, Laura

  2. Yes- confirm that- it appeared in some other book I own as well…I'll have to dig. Always loved the full-view idea behind it…
