Fort Scott, Kansas-based firm Cabin Manufacturing Incorporated builds custom high-end tiny houses for use as luxury mobile hunting lodges. Its recently-completed Bushwacker model boasts several hunting-related additions, including a scent control system and a game processing station.

The Bushwacker measures 8.6 x by 24 ft (2.62 x 7.3 m) and is clad in rusted sheet-cut steel, reclaimed barn wood, and brand-new hardwood, while the roof is rusted steel. The dwelling has very generous glazing and the tiny house also has a small steel deck. The overall design is really striking and vaguely reminiscent of the Steampunk Adventure Home.

Access is gained by a handmade wooden front door which opens directly onto a relatively spacious lounge area, including a couch and armchair. This joins onto a kitchen with a long granite countertop and a breakfast bar that seats four. Appliances include a microwave, copper sink, stainless steel fridge/freezer, and an oven and induction hob.

On the opposite wall lies custom-made storage space for stowing away hunting gear, ammo, guns, and bow racks. The game processing station is located toward the rear of the home, outside, and the scent control system is a Scent Master control box.

The Bushwacker's bathroom includes a shower and toilet and, as with the rest of the home, looks finished to a very high standard. Some notable high-end extras include a Bluetooth-equipped sound system, electric boot warmers, and a security system. Access to the loft sleeping area is gained by storage staircase and it includes a double bed.

The Bushwacker gets its electricity from a standard hookup, which can be plugged into the grid or a portable generator. The interior is heated and cooled by a mini heat pump unit and hot water comes from a propane hot water system. Structurally, it appears to be very solid and weight comes in at a hefty 14,000 lb (6,350 kg).

"Our cabins are built with a 2-inches (5 cm) tubing skeleton," company president Patrick Wood told us. "This skeleton allows us to use interior and exterior finishes that many builders do not. Inside the skeleton, we use 18 gauge steel framing. The steel framing is stronger and lighter than traditional wood framing. The entire structure is glued and screwed. No nails are used. This eliminates [any risk of the] the components of the structure working loose over time."

We've no word on the final cost for the Bushwacker as it depends on what kind of finish and features the customer chooses, but those interested can contact the firm directly to work out a price.

Until these trailers have a pressurized water water system, and a functioning toilet/shower combo, they're not going anywhere with me. I'd like to see one that can mount and dis-mount it's trailer, too. Better yet, have lift points on the corners, so they can be air-lifted into locations inaccessible by wheeled vehicles.

Presumably this is brand new. But I can't be the only one who thinks it looks like a set for "Cabin Fever".
