Build Your Own (Miniature) Fire Lookout
If you’ve had trouble trying to book an overnight stay in a retired fire lookout, well, have you considered building your own? Sure, this one is a little small, but maybe building a lookout model will scratch that itch. With the hot glamping rental market, you could probably Airbnb this little sucker too, somehow.
Anyhow, this adorable model is 15 inches tall by six inches wide. All you need to build it is time and some glue (the manufacturer recommends good old Elmer’s white glue). It has over 1,200 reviews, all of them five-star, so, wow, this thing really delivers. Available on Etsy for $65.
