This is the story of Pax, a tiny floating cottage restored and rebuilt by Jason and Cayley.
It was originally one of the twenty-five boats built in Victoria, Canada for Expo ’86. They were able to acquire the ship for under $6,000 since it was in need of a complete rebuild. The two, one being a professional carpenter and the other a shipwright were able to turn the unwanted barge into a beautiful floating cottage inspired by the tiny house movement. After, they lived happily in it for a time but are now parting ways with Pax and entering a new phase in life and so the floating home is on the market! Learn more below.

When his customers needed a little outhouse, he was there to build it for them.
This is a unique, quirky, whimsical, and little outhouse built by @k.knack (Instagram) somewhere on Salt Spring Island (BC, Canada). This is the same builder who built this awesome micro cabin with bump-out wings seen here. Looks to me like a very nice place to go potty. I would certainly enjoy it! Is that wrong to say? What do you think? How do you like it?
Because of zoning bylaws and site space, this modern house is only 501 sq. ft. The main floor consists of the living/dining/kitchen space and a bathroom (328 sq ft) and upstairs there’s a single bedroom and closet (173 sq ft.).
