Isolated, Off-Grid Hideaway In The Woods, Free From Rain And ‘Alternative Facts’

With our city now so laughably unaffordable, thousands of Vancouverites are stuck imagining wonderful homes instead of living in them. “Spaced” is a record of our minds wandering the world of architecture and design, up and away from the unrewarding realities of shoebox condos, dark basement suites, and sweet fuck all on Craigslist.

(via) Vancouver’s currently horrible stretch of winter weather and the slow-motion train-wreck of Donald Trump’s presidency have now combined for an irritant on par with hives, so escape is the order of the day. This small rental cabin outside Boston scratches several itches at once, beginning with the fact that you can be out of reach here, which is to say your phone would stop constantly vibrating with breaking news of scandal and ‘alternative fact’. It’s also not raining in the photos, which is a big plus. (You can almost hear the sound of the trees in the wind and smell the earth at your feet outside as you bask in the quick restoration of your circadian rhythm.) Conceived in 2015 by Harvard students experimenting with tiny getaways for city folk, it features a queen-sized loft and a nook for a twin bunk bed. There are built-in bookshelves and a dining table, plus a basic kitchen set-up. If we could lift it up and set it down anywhere in BC, we’d put ours on the southern tip of Hornby Island near Heron Rocks.
