4x Quonset home-studio: 40 years of artistic simple living

• Kirsten Dirksen -

In the desert of Joshua Tree, Bobby Furst's home/studio/compound is an artistic wonderland built from 4 Quonset huts, 3 Airstream trailers and a shipping container. When Furst left LA for the desert he erected one two-story 50' by 30' Quonset hut with a lofted bedroom and industrial kitchen and bathroom.

As his first build became more a theater/concert space, First bought another kit and erected a second, third and fourth unit. Using just a friend or two and the help of a Genie Lift, he erected the buildings arch by arch with just the simple bolt technology.
