Rustic, Modular Luxury

What do you get when you combine the creative energies of an outdoor enthusiast, an ingenious cabinetmaker, and an architectural designer who specializes in rustic luxury? Nomadic Shack, a stylish, comfortable, and transportable modular structure that can become a remote getaway darn near anywhere in North America.

Officially launched in May, Nomadic Shack is the brainchild of a potent entrepreneurial team: Angela Erickson, who built the first hunting “shack” (actually an 1,800 square-foot, 4-bedroom, 2-bath hunting getaway that sleeps 12) in Saskatchewan in 2013; Roger Taylor of TaylorMade in Lakeville, cabinetmaker/imagineer; and Dan Whirley, president/owner of RemWhirl, a Cross Lake-based designer of lake homes.

Three years ago, Erickson wanted to build a luxury cabin on a remote site, but she also wanted the quality control and access to finishes not feasible in the middle of nowhere. After conferring with Taylor and Whirley, the idea for a modular structure was born. Several shacks later, all built in an old lumber warehouse in Eagan and then transported to the wilds of Saskatchewan, the company was launched.

Nomadic Shacks offers a turnkey experience, from the initial concept design to site selection and building process to final delivery and furnishings. The shack arrives on site approximately 90 days after construction begins and is move-in ready five days later. With the company’s complete concierge service—which means fully furnished, beds made, refrigerator stocked, tables set—it’s ready for entertaining. See nomadicshack.com
