|Tiny Driftwood House Cape Palmerston, North Vancouver Island, BC|
After the yoga retreat, my new Investment banker, Rock climber, all around amazing person friend Holly hooked me onto her blog which took me to her favorites. Among those is a Tiny House blog! Now some of you KNOW how I LOVE tiny houses! It is debatable whether or not my own less than 700 sq ft cabin qualifies as tiny, but I am soon to find out I hope. In any case, while I sit here waiting for EDD to call so they can drill me about my job search, all the while having to put off a serious job interview for that, focusing on anything serious is impossible. What better way to pass the time than make a Tiny house post! Now this post will update now and again, as my own house (I hope) will change and be updated, and I will no doubt come across new tiny houses I love. I will start by posting some Fall pics of my own tiny (?) home sweet home! I call it the magic cabin.
The magic Cabin
|This was taken early Fall when I began working on paths.|
One of the magic things about this place is a 100 gallon per minute well with the sweetest water in the world! Very nice after living for a good chunk of years without much water.
|I worked plenty hard to put more wood in the wood shed since this.|
|I call this tree the Warrior Tree.|
|Inside is nice and cozy!|
It's amazing, but if I don't leave much laying about, there winds up being plenty of room!
The wood stove heats the place up quickly which is great because I rely on the stove. otherwise it's expensive electric wall heaters and portable electric heaters.
Ok, there will be more on the magic cabin later on! Now I'll move on to some of my favorite tiny houses that I have encountered.
Someday I hope to build a seriously Tiny Guest house. Maybe on a trailer!

Logger Camp tiny house
This next Tiny House is located on the way to Beano Beach on Plumper harbor. One first goes by boat to this spot, them by 4 wheel drive to Beano Surf Camp. No, I don't surf!

The Diamond Lee
Featured here is Captain Lawrence on the Diamond Lee at Westview Marina in Tahsis B.C. Lawrence & Julie are Tree planters with their own tree planing business Nootka Reaforestation. They have been working on this old historical boat to make it their home away from home. There will be more on Julie & Lawrence in my other blog Northern Exposures Nootka Sound http://wwwblackbearmango.blogspot.com later on as I progress with it.

Julie and Lawrence lit the fire under my bum to motivate a painting
party! They painted for a spaghetti dinner in one of the almost unheard of heatwaves in the rain forest! I thought it was a great deal, but had no idea how much spaghetti Julie can put away! I think I'll be her when I grow up...

Barbies Dream House
Ok, I HAVE to post this Tiny House! I spent this Christmas with my Grandchildren and barbie pink was everywhere. For some reason the young men in Kennewick, WA. like to shave all their hair off. Here is my Son in Law Isaiah and friend Tyler Christmas Eve. putting together the Barbie Dream House!
