Joe’s House

1Located off the coast of British Columbia this house is situated on a island and is completely off the grid.  The style harkens back to a outpost or fort.  They designers made the house narrow so that they didn’t have to cut trees down and with the elevated floor plan, you feel as if you are walking among the trees.  The house is 500 square feet, designed with a water catchment system, heat is supplied through a wood stove and power is through solar panels on the roof.


The best feature of this house in my opinion is the bedroom.  The end of it opens up entirely to allow the entire wall to disappear.  This then leads to a large deck with amazing views of the water.  The rest of the floors are also designed to completely open up and bring the outdoors in, which is a concept that I love, with great views and fresh air, I’m jelous!
