This is the story of a couple who built their very own off-grid island. They’ve been living there for over 27 years now, and have added on quite a bit to it. It’s called Freedom Cove in Tofino, BC.
It all started with a tiny floating cabin they built with driftwood that washed ashore after a storm. And since 1992, they have been living in it and adding on to it. Pretty incredible, isn’t it? Please enjoy the video below from Exploring Alternatives for the full story.
Measuring just 20 feet long, the Mica cabin by Cabinscape has a surprising amount of comfort and convenience.
We went to film a full tour of Mica cabin this summer and the first thing we fell in love with was the double bed on the main floor. How nice is it to have an option to sleep on the main level (next to the bathroom!) without having to climb up and down a ladder? Unless you want a bit more privacy, or to have guests, in which case there is a second bed in the loft. The ladder is attached to the wall in a bunkbed style and there is an extra handle on the wall to make it easier to get up and down.
Marie France Roy is a professional snowboarder from Canada who cares deeply about the environment so she decided to experiment with building a tiny home using natural and reclaimed materials. The result is a spectacular organic-shaped cabin that she’s been living in for 4 years now.
It’s two-stories and measures approximately 400 square feet. The main floor is built with a wood frame and cob walls made of sand, clay, and straw. The second floor is built with reclaimed wood.
This is the story of Toronto’s first shipping container home thanks to Mat and Danielle of the Exploring Alternatives YouTube Channel. It’s the story about a family who designed and built a shipping container home above their restaurant, which they already owned.
It’s called the Black Star and it’s designed and built by a couple named Carl and Ana. They used three reclaimed containers to form one half of the house, while the other half is built conventionally. What do you think?
They’ve been living, traveling, and working out of their own van conversion for a while now, and have recently had the opportunity to upgrade to a customized van conversion which you’re getting to see right here and now. Yes, they designed and built it themselves and I think you might find this to be one of the most beautiful and most well thought out van conversions out there. Let me know what you think in the comments.
This cozy tiny house is 24 feet long and it has a sleeping loft with a staircase, two heat sources, lots of natural light, and a rustic cottagey interior design.
The current owner, John, bought the tiny house from a couple who lived in it off-grid for 2 years while they built their permanent home. It’s now located next to a lake in Chelsea, Quebec, Canada, and you can rent this tiny house on Airbnb.
