Tiny House in a Landscape

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape is of a floating cabin, my other passion, off the coastline of Vancouver Island in the province of British Columbia and taken by “portland papa.” (see his website here)

I like the simplicity of the cabin and the rustic setting it fits so well into. Most likely used as a rental cabin, my guess is it would work quite well for full time living as well.

Do you have a favorite retreat? Where do you go to get away from the hustle and bustle of life? I am always looking for tiny houses in a landscape photos and if you have a special place you would like to share with me and the Tiny House Blog readers please send the photos to me at tinyhouseblog@gmail.com. Thank you and have a great day!

  1. Thanks for sharing. May I make a correction? I think you mean the coast of Vancouver Island in the province of British Columbia!

  2. I hate to be the fly in the milk, but, I don’t like “rustic”. It looks too much like poverty and that is something I’m trying judiciously to avoid. I like the houseboats being made by the man in WA state; I think it’s called “Affordable Houseboats” or something like that. I’d like to see a martialing of different houseboat designs. I have a Peter Pan type design that keeps making it’s way into my thoughts with the interior looking like the inside of a tall ship with the back of the house a bank of windows like in the Captain’s quarters. I love tall ship marine architecture; bonnet top everything and casement windows with diamond leaded panes. Instead of going rustic, let’s go design creative and have it be modern functional.

    • “Rustic” is a classic BC look. However, “rustic” and “rundown” should not necessarily be considered interchangeable. I like your creative design idea. My favourite is some crazy blend of Fairy Tale (like the 7 Dwarfs house) and Northern/Eastern European like a lot of the illustrations in Jan Brett children’s books, slightly toned down by Shaker simplicity with a bare hint of clean line modern. I too like diamond pane windows but it depends on what your view is. For town I definitely like it broken up by smaller panes. For a grand panoramic vista the more huge undivided glass panels the better.
