Life in an Octahut is a cozy one. The feel and even the sound of the wood is welcoming and comforting. As the winds start to howl, the Octahut has a feel of solidity and security that is exactly the opposite of the traditional tent experience. With the door and windows shut, the Octahut is shelter from the light as well for those who like to sleep a bit later or sleep during the day. Setting up on uneven terrain, the Octahut adapts to the surface that it is on easily. Even the height of an Octahut is configurable. Some have been made specifically to fit in the bed of a pickup with the tailgate closed, some have been made at a full 8' high and some are at the standard height of 6'6" to make assembly and transport easier.
