This small vacation cabin is located on an island not far from Vancouver, Canada. Tammy and John wanted a getaway place for their young family. They had initially considered building larger but settled on a 10′ by 12′ size…big enough for comfortable camping, but small enough that it did not require a building permit and would not be a burden on their finances. A large deck almost doubles the living area. The materials cost about $7,000 and it took two weeks of long days for John and a family friend to build.
