Vancouver-based Leckie Studio Architecture + Design has founded the Backcountry Hut Company to bring affordable recreation structures to outdoor enthusiasts. Inspired by IKEA's philosophy of providing superior design at a moderate price point, the prefabricated hut prototype aims to embody the company's four cornerstones: function, quality, sustainability, and value.

The hut system is designed for adaptability, and can be constructed on any backcountry site accessible by truck or helicopter. The engineered wooden post-and-beam frame can be assembled in the tradition of community barn raising. Prefabricated wall and roof panels are small enough to be lifted with a pulley and winch. The hut can then be finished with a simple nail-on window system and customizable interior fit-outs and exterior finishes. The modular structure is also customizable by combining 10-foot units.

Though originally intended for backcountry use, the hut is flexible enough to be used on both rural and urban sites. The shell can be furnished to accommodate full-time habitation, similar to a tiny house.
