OUT OF THE WOODS AND ONTO THE WATER

THEY SAY A LOG CABIN OUT OF THE WOODS IS LIKE A FISH OUT OF WATER, BUT HERE’S A HOUSEBOAT THAT WILL PROVE THEM OTHERWISE

 A log cabin’s natural habitat is a remote location in the woods. That’s just what we’re all used to. After all, the classic charm of a log cabin home also comes from its surroundings. So what happens when you take a log cabin out of its natural habitat and into, as they say, uncharted waters? Well, some people might get skeptical. “It would take away some of the charms that make a log cabin,” they would say. However, a houseboat in Richmond, Canada is going to help us see that log cabins can still be charming wherever they would be located.

Dubbed the Partnership 11, the outward appearance of this houseboat already screams log cabin. It boasts a rustic look that makes it look fresh out of the woods. Inside, you won’t be able to tell this houseboat apart from the usual log cabin. A lot of the signature characteristics of a log cabin are here, such as the exposed beams and a log-burning furnace. Wide windows provide picturesque views of the marina while flooding the interior with natural light. Wooden backdrops and warm tones set up a cozy and homey atmosphere aboard this houseboat.

So remember, just because a log cabin started out in the woods it doesn’t mean it’s meant to stay there. It’s meant to be a home away from home in a place where you can escape from the world and just unwind. What better way to do these things than in a log cabin houseboat?

Anyone who thinks that wooden cabins are only fit for the forest has never encountered a floating home like the Partnership 11. She is a Richmond, British Columbia coastal classic just waiting to take a new owner out on an off-grid inspired journey.
