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.

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.
