As a kid I spent the summers on Hornby Island, on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. Lloyd House, a particularly artistic builder, practiced his wares on the island, creating the community center and a number of unique and beautiful homes in the style of the Pacific coast.

One of the most magical of these buildings is the Leaf House. It is a whimsical and airy cabin, seemingly balanced precariously on one driftwood beam. In my mind, the leaf house epitomizes the creativity of the owner-built home. It is what happens when we look at building beyond the conventional norms - beyond stick framing and vinyl siding; beyond the real estate market; beyond housing simply as a means to make a buck. I only just got to see the leaf house (the location was not well known until the area became more public recently) a couple of years ago and it inspired me to start building and designing tiny homes.
