The kitchen is stocked with essentials, a two-burner propane stove, and all the basic amenities you’ll need to prepare your meals. The tiny home also provides natural soap and body products without chemical fragrances. The steep driveway is now paved. It’s a smooth ride up and easy to navigate. The tiny house saves water by offering a modern and easy-to-use composting toilet, it’s very clean, and odorless when used according to directions. The bed nook requires two big steps and a bit of a climb to get in. Due to extreme fire hazards, the propane fire pit will not be available in July, August, and most of September.
A note to cyclists, Canberry Rd is almost all uphill to the tiny home. Cycling to the tiny home is possible but very challenging unless you have an e-bike or are a serious athlete. You have the entire tiny house and deck, and a forested area to yourself, with parking and a private entrance. The owner’s house is on the other side of the driveway. You will want to note that there is a significant climb to get into the bed nook, and a set of stairs to get into the tiny house (without a handrail), you’ll want to have a good look at the photo. And feel free to message the owners if you have any questions. Though small, and boasting a sweet rustic vibe, the tiny house is warm and comfy, even in the chilly seasons. The tiny home is a 4-minute drive from the Ganges, but it’s not easy walking distance because of the hills.
