During the 1970′s Roger Beck was one of the first pioneers of the house truck movement on the west coast of America.
He used them as a home during travels throughout the United States, according to his interview on Ivan Morison’s article Tales of Space and Time, where he interviews Roger.

Deep in the woods of Garrett County, Maryland, this little house offers its guests a rustic escape back to simpler times.
