Valdes Island Shack

This ultra cool and off-grid log cabin sits on a hillside on Canada’s Valdes Island, a small piece of land with just 9 square miles located in the British Columbia Gulf Islands. The unique retreat was built by Burnkit founder Josh Dunford and was designed to be self sustainable using solar power and rainwater collection systems, it also has modern comfort features to withstand the harsh weather conditions you may endure during most of the year at this remote spot. With a curious design, making it sit in an angle on the hillside, the black cedar finish cabin has everything needed for a weekend away or extended stay, from a fully functioning kitchen to sleeping loft and ample storage. It also features a wood burning stove to heat up the shack, and a wood deck with an outdoor shower and soaker tub, making it a magical place to escape the stressful city life and get back to our roots.
