  1. Ever since I first saw them, I've loved The Tiny Homes on Wheels! This would have been perfect for Don and I and a (small) pet or two!

  2. Oh, I won't be in BC until next month. Too bad. I enjoy Lloyd's blog and love checking out the tiny homes, especially the cob and straw bale ones, but they'll have to remain a dream for me because Dick and I can barely manage to get along in 1200 square feet. LOL

  3. It's agreat picture of your cabin!

  4. Hi Margy,

    You lucky ducks! Will you get to see him? I have been following Lloyd’s blog for over a year and it is always interesting.

  5. Yes, it was very exciting to have our float cabin highlighted in Lloyd's new book. I will be going to Vancouver on Thursday to meet him for the first time. All of our communication so far has been by email. I am so excited. - Margy

  6. Thanks for posting the link to Lloyd's blog. Will take a look. Will look into getting the book soon as I love stuff like this.

  8. I'd go if I could!
    Greetings from Cottage Country!

  9. I got to go see Lloyd's presentation. Good thing I got there early. It was standing room only! I was so honoured that he used three shots of the cabin in his slide show, and left our rainbow picture over Goat Island up through the whole question and answer period. Thanks Lloyd. - Margy
