Rebroadcast of Our Float Cabin on UNIS Television

Wayne and I were honoured to host a film team from Red Letter Films at our Hole in the Wall float cabin home in July 2014. Evelyne and her film crew including camera technician Catherine (Cat), and assistant camera tech Creighton (Crey), spent a whole day with us up the lake getting to know what off the grid float cabin living was like.

The results called Chalets de la Cote Ouest (West Coast Cottages) will be rebroadcasting on UNIS, a Canadian television channel focusing on French-speaking audiences from British Columbia to the Atlantic provinces.

Click below to go the the video link. This is a screen shot.

Our float cabin home is featured in the second segment that is rebroadcasting as follows:

or check your local listing.

It should be available (in French only) on the UNIS website after the first airing date. Click here to go to the video page and click on the arrow next to "Voir la video."

Sharing our lifestyle has been fun. This was our second televison production. The first was for Extreme Houseboats on the Travel Channel. Unfortunately this online video is blocked in Canada. -- Margy

    1. Yes, the name was one thing that first attracted me to the cabin's location. I'm a former (?) horsewoman (you can take the horse away from the woman, but not the love of horses). - Margy

    1. It was fun to have them visit. The link to the video online should work tomorrow I think. They usually wait until it has aired on TV to make it active. - Margy

  14. I've just watched the :Chalets de la Cote Ouest" Thanks for the video link - very enjoyable! In my opinion! It would be hard to make a poor video with an environment as beautiful as that!!! I'm sure that even an Aussie audience would thoroughly enjoy it!
