Little Cabin up the Lake

Located on Powell Lake, BC

… Our cabin is small (20′ × 21′), but complete. The downstairs has two bedrooms, one of which we use for storage and a bathtub. The main downstairs is a great room design including kitchen, dining, and living areas. The large upstairs loft is our bedroom. It’s plenty of space, especially since we have the whole outdoors at our doorstep. The main float is 40′ × 40′ and we have additional floats for a variety of purposes: a dock, a floating woodshed and my floating vegetable garden…

Stunning Treehouse



There is something about the idea of a treehouse that truly captures the imagination. For builders, it’s a licence to let their creativity run wild and construct something which is playful and adventurous. For years now the team at Nelson Treehouse and Supply (better known as the Treehouse Masters from their hit TV show) have been doing just that. This week we were fortunate enough to be able to visit one of their latest projects in Seattle, Washington.

The treehouse is accessed by a rustic set of stairs which wrap around the trunk of the tree and curve down to the ground below.

The exterior of the treehouse is exquisitely finished, with spectacular yellow cedar shingles. A large porch area provides plenty of space to relax, entertain and enjoy being up amongst the trees…

Forest Cabin Built from Salvaged Materials



For a student without a lot of money, the idea of being able to avoid rent by building a cabin in the woods may sound like a far-fetched dream, yet for a young Jacob Witzling it was the perfect solution. Earlier, we visited some of Jacob’s incredible cabin projects where he lived later in life but in this feature we go all the way back to where it began; a beautiful and secluded woodland cabin that Jacob constructed for an insane figure of only $800 and which he lived in during his college years in Olympia, Washington…

Six Lighthouses the Government Is Selling for Nearly Nothing

The lovely Poe Reef Lighthouse is located in Lake Huron at the east end of South Channel between Bois Blanc Island and the mainland of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, about 6 miles east of Cheboygan. It is not named after the Poe we all probably think of at first, but rather, Orlando M. Poe, a lighthouse chief engineer. The Poe Reef Lighthouse went into service on August 15, 1929 and is comprised of a 71-foot tall white square tower on a concrete crib. Starting bids begin at $10,000.

Beautiful Cabin in the Forest



Standing amongst the sea of green that is the forest of Olympia, this whimsical cabin appears to have fallen onto the land directly from the pages of a storybook. Built by the inspiring Jacob Witzling, a math teacher by trade, the cabin was designed to be beautiful yet unassuming, nestling perfectly into its deep wooded landscape…
