Michael and Phoebe bought a lot on a Canadian island about three years ago and then spent a year building their 13×8 off-grid cabin, outdoor shower, rainwater catchment system, and gardens. Their island is only accessible via boat, and they live there with their adorable dog, Zephyr.
The cabin’s cladding comes from milled cedar from their property, and they heat it with a cozy corner wood-burning stove. Inside you’ll find a living and kitchen area on the ground floor, and then they have a sleeping loft and bookshelf. While they’d live tiny forever, they are going to start construction on a sub-700-square-foot home in order to be in compliance with local regulations. Enjoy their introduction and photo tour below!

So what’s the story behind your tiny house?
Michael and Phoebe built this 10 square meter (108sqf) home on a small off-grid island in BC, they live in it full time with dog Zephyr. The home acts as a cozy base for lives spent mostly outside in the forests and on the water. We built it with the help of friends over the course of almost a year, the siding is milled from a cedar on the property. We collect rainwater and have a battery bank for power. The property has shown us what we can do, and continues to inspire and challenge us every day.
