The main cabin can be found sitting amidst a grove of mature trees, deep within the lush greenery of Vancouver Island’s southern tip. 

The home was designed to minimize damage and intervention to the surrounding greenery, leaving as much plant and vegetation to thrive as possible. 

Inside, the home uses subdued colors to blend in with nature, opting for neutral gray tones and natural wooden fixtures.  

The minimalist fireplace is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, which bring plenty of light into the living room. 

The views from the living room peer into the dense trees surrounding the property. 

A corner for rest and relaxation takes in many natural offerings, like the sun, trees, rocky landscape, and grass. 

Even the wood finishes retain a natural, subtle hue to blend into the surroundings. 

Wooden beams support the ceiling of the A-frame cabin. 

The living room seamlessly gives way to the kitchen, which is anchored by a wood-and-marble island.

A hammock provides a place to relax and take in views of the verdant greenery. 

The kitchen embodies the home’s less-is-more approach. The countertops and backsplash are finished with marble for an elegant touch. 

The home offers modern appliances and ample storage space. 

Just past the kitchen, there’s a bedroom with a freestanding bathtub and large windows.

The home emphasizes views of the forest, no matter what room you find yourself in. 

The attached bathroom features a tiled shower and a vanity clad in marble and wood. 

Upstairs, a loft features a skylight and more of the subdued wooden details found throughout the home. 

The upstairs living area has a small skylight, which helps light up the room. Beyond this area, through the slanted door, lies a bedroom.

A bedside window lets you peer into the woods, with light pouring down from the square skylight above. 

The smaller cabin lies just down the path from the main one, and is just as immersed in nature. 

A simple living space features a minimalist fireplace, and a ladder leads to the bedroom area. 

Upstairs, two sizable windows light up the bedroom, which is framed by natural wooden floor and materials. 

The living area features a small kitchenette and sliding doors for easy access to nature. 

Just past the living room, a bathroom with full nature views opens to the forest. 

A small shed for storing and chopping firewood is also located on the property.
