27-ft. Floating Tiny Cabin in Bobcaygeon, Ontario
It has a beautiful living room that is so close to the water, you could almost dive in from the couch!
The massive kitchen has loads of counter space and storage, and there is a bathroom on the main floor and another up in the loft.
The loft has room to stand up in it and space to sleep three people, and the railing is glass so that you can have a view of the water from upstairs.
There are 39 kW of solar panels on the secondary roof, and they generate renewable energy that is sold back to the grid (they don’t power the bunkie directly, but they offset the energy use from the marina and provide a return on the investment on the system).
This river bunkie was designed by Charles Pitcher and built by Jeff Derkinderen and his son Keane.
