This tiny cabin was self-built on a budget using mostly secondhand and reclaimed materials. Luke has lived in his cabin for the past 5 years, and his partner Meg moved in about 1.5 years after it was built. The cabin itself is a little over 200 square feet and is very simply furnished with a kitchen, a bed, a wood stove, and a couple of stools. They also have small outbuildings including an outhouse, a pumphouse for their laundry machines and freezer, an outdoor shower, and a studio space for making music and housing guests.
Luke originally built the tiny cabin as a way to get away from city life so that he could have a quiet and affordable place to focus on making music. The cabin is built on 2.5 acres of shared land that is owned by a friend, and it’s located on unceded Coast Salish Territory.
With Meg being a nutritionist, growing fresh food was a natural interest and so having the space to garden was a big factor in her decision to move from the city to a rural property. Having a low-cost housing situation has also given her the financial freedom to spend time building her nutrition business.
