Designing a Home for Escape and Adventure
By Emma Reddington
Photography by Sian Richards
From vanlifers to boondockers, liveaboards to tiny-house dwellers, tour 26 unconventional homes and meet the people who live them.
A reclusive designer living in a custom tiny house in the middle of the Montana wilderness. A couple who traded their expensive Bay Area apartment for a slip at a nearby marina, where they live on a docked sailboat. A family of five who decided to simplify their lives by moving into a school bus, selling most of their possessions in the process. Nomad features their stories, and many more. These freedom seekers have forged a new way of life for themselves—one that values experiences over things, is environmentally conscious, and is often more budget-friendly than their “rooted” lives ever were.
The ubiquity of the internet has ushered in a new era of connectivity that makes working from an Airstream beside a roaring river or running a photography business from a mountaintop a reality. It’s now possible to do whatever you want from wherever you want and still have a foothold in the world. With over 400 color photographs and practical, how-to advice including a comprehensive guide to finding the right home, assessing the cost of renovation, and handy products for small spaces this book is an indispensable resource for those looking to make their own off-the-grid dream a reality.
