Off-grid living in the original 336 SF weeHouse was weekend respite for a musician and her son. It sat on prairie land near Lake Pepin, part of the Mississippi River. The Arado weeHouse was built “in-factory” by Geoffrey C. Warner and a team of craftsmen for about $60,000 (in 2003). It was shipped to the site via truck, and installed by crane onto a newly built pier foundation. The deck and outhouse soon followed. The weeHouse was relocated to the Twin Cities in 2015. It still stands as the iconic image for the weeHouse identity.
