Shelton Huts + Blue Sky Story

In May of 2015 we collaborated with Jeff Shelton, Architect and his talented daughter and designer Mattie Shelton along with entrepreneur and philanthropist, Neil Dipaola of Mesa Lane Partners, to develop a unique solution to rural community development. The idea was a a group of unique accommodations that would allow for artist-in-residencies and a hospitality venture that could draw attention and investment in the disadvantaged community of New Cuyama. At the time, Jeff and Mattie were already developing concepts for small, mobile, and modular dwellings. Soon after Shelton Huts was born and the first prototypes made their way to the high desert.

Thank you to the Dipaola Foundation for the generous grant to help fund the prototypes and Jeff and Mattie for the design and in-kind support to make it happen.
