Clearly, good things do come in small packages. At just 100 square feet, the Galiano 100 is a tiny home affectionately dubbed “Ohana,” meaning family in Hawaiian, by its owners. The compact house overlooks the Strait of Georgia and the lights of downtown Vancouver. Situated on Galiano Island, British Columbia, the tiny home was completed in 2018 by Vancouver-based design firm Trim Studio. The lucky couple, Alicia and Kris Alexander, planned to get married on the Ohana property and live in the tiny cabin after tying the knot.

While Ohana may certainly seem simple to some, the tiny cabin does have everything the couple requested and more: a kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom, patio, log storage, living area, an outdoor shower and even an outdoor hot tub. Not only can the residents gaze through the tiny home’s floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors and enjoy the cozy, wood-burning stove , but they also reap the rewards of the rustic cabin’s setting. The spacious deck, where the hot tub is located, is ideal for relaxing and taking in many a starry night without interruptions. With the tiny cabin’s minimalist design , beautiful forest views, outdoor entertaining area and other innovative amenities, it’s easy to see why Alicia and Kris wanted to settle here. Ohana not only packs a sleek architectural punch, but the tiny house meets the couple’s needs from top to bottom, inside and out. Magical yet practical, Ohana is a place that Alicia and Kris will undoubtedly call home-sweet-tiny-home for years to come. + Trim Studio Via Dwell Photography by Jarusha Brown via Trim Studio
