Quote of the Week: Seth Godin

Seth Godin

"The only things that are scarce in the world of connection and services and the net are the things that are difficult, and the only things that are valuable are the things that are scarce. When we intentionally seek out the difficult tasks, we're much more likely to actually create value."


Oborain is a design shop in Western Mass specializing in handcrafted prefab outdoor showers.  From a variety of exceptional, exterior-grade materials we craft showers that are aesthetically beautiful, elegantly functional, and highly durable.  Simple to assemble and plumb, the showers integrate a fixture and enclosure as one design package.  Showers are also available as an enclosure only.  As a custom shop, we can modify any shower for accessibility, or build to any specification.  Experience the joy of showering outdoors!
