Re: interesting product

Agree with Jage.

Also, as someone who lives in downtown NYC, one of the great joys for me is getting AWAY from walls.

Just saying...

Re: interesting product

For those people who love their cubicles at the office so much, they want to take that same feeling with them wherever they go.

Ever see the movie "Office Space"?

Shoot, if I need one of those, I'm staying home. The yard is much bigger!

Re: interesting product

I do see some use of this product. I like to camp in inclement weather and use a heavy duty tarp as a rain cover close to the fire. For walls I just use nylon tarps. They're a bit difficult to rig up and something that sets up quickly might be nice.



Those also might be nice as walls for the awning.

Re: interesting product

I was thinking along the same lines as Dave. However, I believe they are only rated up to a 15 mph wind, so I doubt they would last long in inclement weather.
