These are the plans to the 570 sq. ft. British Columbia small foundation home. It’s designed by Robinson Residential, and if you are looking for something to put on land, this home might be it!
The British Columbia-570 small home plan pays tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright’s contribution to residential architecture. His idea that one should “Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature….” is echoed by this beautiful province. His Usonian homes were designed to be affordable and comfortable using simple materials and construction featuring walls of doors and windows, built-in furnishings and cabinets. The large stone fireplace is the heart of this small home which features:
Large living room and dining room with bands of horizontal windows, wood beams and vaulted ceilings Exterior doors from the kitchen, dining room and bedroom 1 bedroom, 1 bath

A cozy vacation cottage tucked away in the woods of Pender Island, British Columbia, Canada. This cottage was restored by the owners who are very crafty with woodworking, stain glass and plastering. They call it the Artwood Cottage.
The cottage has a sleeping loft, open living and dining room, a small kitchen and bathroom with composting toilet.
You can see their creative touches throughout the cottage including earthy textured plastering on the walls.
They’ve replaced the wooden stairs that lead up to the sleeping loft. And check out the custom railing upstairs. Plus the fireplace downstairs seems to be wrapped with natural stone.
Nestled deep within nature and surrounded by a lush man-made pond this totem style cabin is a guest house oasis. Henry Yorke Mann, architect, designed this small cabin for clients who wanted to give their guests an experience they would not forget among the 10-acre property in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia.
Once inside you will notice there is a skylight that runs the length of the home at the peak of the roof. This feature gives so much sunlight inside the wooded cabin.
There is a fireplace that divides the home from the living and dining area in the front half and the kitchen and bathroom in the back corners. With the sleeping loft above.
The owners decided to stay in the cabin a few times and soon discovered they were ready to downsize from their 5,000 sq. ft. home to the 400 sq. ft. Totem cabin.
Check out the inside of this cabin in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia.
