Small Garage-Turned-Cabin Would Glow Brightly Anywhere Along BC’s Coastline


(via) What used to be an abandoned garage on a small island in a Washington State lake has been turned into a beautiful, illuminated waterfront cabin by Seattle design studio Graypants. The small structure incorporates much of the garage’s original materials, plus an antique wood-burning stove, convertible chair/beds hidden in the floorboards, an outdoor shower system, a solid Corian speakeasy bar that disappears with a slide, and interior walls that light up via mobile phone. Something similar would be an ideal small-space getaway on any of our Gulf Islands or along the Sunshine Coast. Photos courtesy of Amos Morgan Photography.

SPACED // Tiny ‘Nature Villa’ in the Woods

It lacks a kitchen but we'd happily cook over a fire nearby just so we could sleep in that bed and hang on that deck...

Contemplating Life on a Handmade ‘Floating Island’

The big deck holds a BBQ, a herb garden, a hammock, and several other wonderful things besides (like a baby blue canoe).

We’d Like to Self-Isolate in This Off-Grid Tiny House on the Other Side of the World

To be able to escape the city for the sake of social distancing is a dream worth having in these weird and dangerous times.

The cool and remote constructions take full advantage of photovoltaic panels, grey/black water treatment and rainwater collection.
