Small Cabin Up The Lake

Tue, Dec 23, 2008 | Small home designs | By Mike

Small floating cabins on lakes aren’t a new idea nowadays. It’s a great retrieve place to spend summer and sunny weekends there. What could be better than clean nature and peaceful water around you?

Float cabins are a big part of Coastal British Columbia history. On Powell Lake, float cabins were inexpensive hunting and fishing getaways for paper mill workers. Today things are a little more regulated. Cabins have registered water leases and we pay property taxes.

This small cabinet has his own garden and two floors for living. It has everything needed for the normal living: restroom, kitchen, bedroom and guest room.
