Storybook Cottage By The Sea

47274 ratings | 2005341 views
This small fantasy cottage by the ocean is one that you have to see to believe. Located directly on the shoreline of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, this fairytale tiny home is built from natural materials using old-fashioned techniques to deliver a home which looks as though it has fallen from the pages of a storybook. Inside, the home is surprisingly contemporary, making this not only a visually stunning architectural marvel, but also a practical dwelling designed to include all the creature comforts.

I actually really liked the interior! Why not have a weird, quirky house on the outside that is actually cozy and functional inside? I laughed when he said there was no oven though...doesn't want too many Hansel & Gretel vibes I guess!

The stair and bedroom sights reminds me of my old house granpa in Pengalengan, Indonesia. Not as tidy as this house, but has the same vibe and sparks emotional feeling after watch this video. All woods material and narrow rooftop. Oh I miss my granpa's old house. Too bad he renovated the house into modern style.

I bet when he says "we did this" or "we made that" he's talking about the builders that he hired.

He could have done more custom interior. Love the location and the outer aesthetics

It looks so big inside from the view outside that always surprises me when I see tiny homes once viewed inside!

Huge disappointment. A house where youd expect fairies to greet you at the door, but you walk in and youre in a luxury apartment in the city. Bleah !!!

I loved it a lot at first but then at the end I was sort of sick of it. It got too much for my eyes. The inside, while functional, was a let down. No wicked witch sitting on the couch for a start. Yeah it’s ok. Weird that no oven but a huge fridge..!!? Maybe you can get Uber Eats on Victoria Island.

This is Steve Jobs all over again. This dude did nothing other than sign a cheque book. Would have been nice to meet the real creators of the project.
Animus Miles-Militis (22 days ago)
+islandbee you are clutching at straws for a comments win. I'll happily hand it to you. Although, I would like to see one Chinese worker Steve Jobs made rich! Only Americans made wealth as a minority of the work force.
islandbee (22 days ago)
+Animus Miles-Militis - He made both investors and employees rich. The guys who built are probably doing other projects and moved on. And by the looks of it, the cottage is on small island. It would be hard to convince me, if I were them to make the effort to make it there. Unless, my motivation meant more PR for me as a builder.
Animus Miles-Militis (23 days ago)
+islandbee He made investors rich. Not employees. This guy should have had the workers speak in the video.
islandbee (23 days ago)
+Animus Miles-Militis - But, you just said "this dude did nothing other than sign a cheque book." He does mention the two guys who created the house in the video. I don't know how much credit you need to give anyone, when Steve Jobs made the other contributors to Apple rich from his ideas.
Animus Miles-Militis (23 days ago)
+islandbee That was not the problem. The problem was he never credited any of the people that actually made it happen.

madaraszi (1 month ago)
It's just too artificially cute to me. I know a lot of old peasant house in Europe and their magic comes from the simplicity of the people that build them. But here we see someone who builds e.g. an asymmettrical roof - not because he has no tools to build a correct one but because he wants to be cute - and this is just infantile to me.
Highbaby9 (1 month ago)
I think if he had closed in the upstairs floor instead of having it be able to see downstairs he could have had plenty of storage space. You can get a convection oven and you can cook. Other than that it’s cute but not for the price. Tiny living is to help keep your budget down with that price I could have a three bedroom three bath townhouse. Oh..like I do now for under $150,000

Ok i am asian ,but do people really wear their shoes into people's house?? Like what..?
axiomist (20 days ago)
The only place I take off my shoes is at home and thats only for comfort. Anybody else who comes wears shoes.
Bettie OWL (21 days ago)
I live in Canada and yes, we do remove our shoes before entering a home. I think maybe for the cameras, he did not remove his shoes?
cjpeery (29 days ago)
We take ours off, after we enter our home, at the door. Don't want dirt/mud or bugs tracked in. And I work with food so I have food in my treds. Shoes off at the door = less cleaning.
Alla (1 month ago)
They really do. And most people are afraid to put down their shoes because their feet and socks smell. It took me 10 years to live in Ireland to understand why. Its because its freezing and cold floors as no proper heating systems.
Yvet Jo (1 month ago)
Yes, I do unless I'm asked to take my shoes off. However, during this video, I did wonder about that guy's dirty shoes on those beautifully carved stairs.

That cabin is beautiful and as usual Bryce did a great job keeping the interview lively and asking the right questions, letting the owner add important details that add to the character of the build. Great job filming as well :) Thanks for showing such an interesting home!

You can find one in Romania aswell! But it's way bigger and it has a stone tower aswell. Right in the heart of Carpathian mountains, in the very beautiful Transylvania. Fairy valley! ❤

as charming as it looks, its totally impractical. aside from in the kitchen, there´s zero storage. this was clearly meant to be for short-term stays. a whimsical weekend getaway for the guy who has everything....
WinterGirl (1 month ago)
I love idiosyncratic and asymmetrical houses, and this one fits the location perfectly (on the outside). I also understand putting in extra effort initially usually results in something longer lasting down the track... But I'm wondering how functional that wooden roof is. Wouldn't it be a lot of work to keep it from rotting?
