The Valdes Island Shack / is a cozy getaway nestled amid the towering Douglas fir trees of British ’s Gulf Islands. The structure, essentially a tilted box conceived by the Vancouver-based outfit Hinterland Design, was built over the course of five weeks by a small group of craftsmen camping in the wilderness. The exterior is made to withstand the elements, featuring black-stained cedar siding running perpendicular to the sloping roofline. The interior, meanwhile, houses a fully functional kitchen and sleeping loft, with modern conveniences made possible by solar power, and rainwater collection supplying water to the outdoor shower and soaker tub.
