Built for Forever

Tested, engineered, and licensed.

Built for the planet

Our wood structure and hemp insulation produce 3x fewer carbon emissions than steel frames with traditional insulation. At ELMNTL, we care about the end of our products' life cycles. Our materials are designed to be reused or composted.

Built for extremes

ELMNTL Shelters are designed to withstand extreme conditions. They are outfitted with class A fire-rated, fireproof exteriors that can withstand up to 195 mph winds. The snow-load capacity of 100 lbs/sqft and a water-tight envelope add complete shelter from the elements.

Built to outlast

ELMNTL Shelter is backed by a 10-year structural warranty and a 2-year systems warranty. We've designed, engineered, and built with longevity in mind. Until you choose to dismantle it, our structure will stand solid through the elements.

Built to perfection

Our team merges the artistry of fine furniture craftsmanship and the precision of boat building to craft stunning structures. We believe that a lifetime investment deserves timeless craftsmanship that you can admire for years to come.

Built for the wild

Go off-grid, unplug, and truly immerse yourself in the elements. Large windows invite in the views and natural light. Add a rooftop or traditional deck to enhance your outdoor experience. We can outfit ELMNTL Shelter to be off-grid capable with a number of systems.
