    I purchased a sleeping barrel from One of a Kind in 2019 and would highly recommend the company. Dave was incredibly friendly and helpful during the whole process and offered complete flexibility in the design and other details. I received multiple updates along the way and was even invited to the warehouse to see it being built. The finished product was delivered on time and the quality and craftsmanship was excellent. I have received so many compliments and inquiries from people passing by that I plan to purchase a few more barrels this season and rent them as accommodations at my oceanfront campsite in Ucluelet. The ocean view out of the bubble dome window is absolutely spectacular! If you want to take one for a test sleep before buying your own please visit
