This mobile sauna was conceived, designed, and constructed in a six-day design-build workshop. Built on a tiny house trailer, the structure both functions and visually reflects the Vermont vernacular architecture, engaging the rural landscape. The build was an opportunity to work with materials, tools, technique, translation of design to functional prototype, carpentry convention, a work site, collaborators, and deadlines.
