Steven Harrell from Tiny House Listings sent me to this photo for this week’s Tiny House in a Landscape. Cabin and Aurora Borealis is the title and what a majestic photograph of a tiny house.
I have only been able to see the Aurora Borealis once in my lifetime on a trip to Canada and it was not near this beautiful as we were in the souther part of the country. What I did see was still phenomenal and I’m sure for those of you have witnessed it like this it must be amazing.
Have a great weekend!

The X-Permit Cabin is an exercise to create a livable space that will be built on a salvaged travel trailer frame. It will be self sustainable, off grid, and will be built without building permits because it is a “travel trailer” and will be registered as such. The site is beside the ocean in Canada. The actual location will be revealed as time goes on. The point of this is to circumvent onerous permits and inspections that come with “permanent” structures. XPC will be an exercise in civics, construction, and innovation. I hope you follow us as we move forward.
Certainly, “tiny homes” have been built before and many are like the one we are building, on a trailer, for various reasons. This one is a personal experiment in building a livable space in a maximum of 135 square feet. There probably won’t be “grand innovation” involved, but the completed cabin on wheels must have the charm and friendly atmosphere of an old seaside cottage distilled into the space allocated.

Last January I covered Zack Griffin and the beginning of his tiny house adventure visiting the great ski areas with several friends across North America. Here is the link.
Zack recently contacted me and here is what he had to say:
Last year I built a Tiny House in order to go on a ski trip! Along with my girlfriend, brother, and two other friends we took the house all over the western United States and into Canada, over 9000 miles. We had the time of our lives! My brother made a movie that I wanted to share with you. I hope you enjoy it!
Below is the movie and some still photos of their adventure. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Thanks Zack for a great update to your adventure.

If you are looking for an opportunity to try out tiny house living, staying in a small or tiny cabin for a vacation is an option. Clifford Trend spotted this one and wanted to share it with us. It is called the Banff Log Cabin Guesthouse.
