British Firm Designs The Cabin We Want For Indulgent Sunshine Coast Isolation

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) This oak-framed/trussed and burnt cedar-clad cabin overlooks a meadow on the edge of an isolated patch of woods in Great Britain. It includes a wood-burning stove for heat and rooftop photovoltaic panels to power the lights and convection oven. It was developed by UK firm Out Of The Valley to be of simple construction so that it could built just about anywhere. We’d gladly take ours overlooking a similar meadow on the Sunshine Coast.
