    I am completely in love!!!! My husband and I know that we want to be off the grid within the next 2 years or so. Our plan is to be living on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, and we are still thinking and dreaming about what life will look like at that time. I have to say, this little love has stolen my heart – we will definitely consider this style for our future home!!

    Thanks for sharing your treasure with us!

    Hello there, my fiancé and I were eating at bud bay tonight when we stumbled across sweet pea, out on our evening walk after dinner.
    We both instantly fell in love with it. So I went directly home and started searching house boat ideas. Sure enough I found sweet pea again, and i have so many questions. I’m in the construction trade as well and would love to pick your brain on how you built her. Im young and ambitious and getting married in 30 days! Would love to tackle a project like this, just seeing if its realistic or not, rent for docking your house? Build cost? Water? Septic? Electricity? Codes? Rules and regulations ect. Thanks you Call or Text or Email devanhawes@hotmail.com / 3605083611
