Tiny Studio on Salt Spring Island

"DestinationOM's Studio on Saltspring Island, BC.… It happily stood up to 100km/h + winds the night before last. I built the entire studio (8' x 12') including all the entire trim/electrical and finishings for $2300. The floor and the stairs cost $1100! So the rest of the building cost $1200 - free windows, door, metal roofing and almost free bevelled cedar siding. The floor is made of birch ply with 5 coats of hi gloss varathane; the stairs were custom made by a friend on the island called www.toughtinywelder.ca.…

BC's Gulf Islands are some of the most beautiful places in the world, Lloyd, and I'll never forget the first one I ever visited...Saltspring in 1963.
Love the tiny mini-cabin.

If any of you are interested in seeing more photos of the build then click the link below :) I built it myself except for the part where the neighbour helped raise the front wall and two others helped to install the 8'x5' front window :)
