    A friend in the Rocky Mountains built a similar structure only it was permanent. The framing was mostly old wooden pallets, the siding, windows, doors and sheet rock were all old construction debris. 😉 Plywood sheets and roofing shingles were the only non plumbing/electrical purchases.

    Similar. The heat was supplied by a wood burning stove in the center which was also used to cook. Summertime cooling was done with 2 window A/C units for rare humid days. The main cooling was supplied by a massive swamp cooler on top of the roof. Rooms were divided similar to cubicles.

    We have had one from our local scouts. You need three persons to set it up, but its great in terms of stability and head space 😉
