This property off the coast of Vancouver is proof that you don’t always need a huge space to build a vacation home of your own – sometimes, all you need is just a hundred square feet…

Kris and Ali is a newly-engaged couple who wanted to create a place that they could share with their friends and family. To help turn their vision into a reality, they sought the help of the local firm Trim Studio.

Their design requirements were typical – the pair wanted to have a living room, bathroom, kitchen, wood-burning stove, bedroom, patio, outdoor shower, and a place to store logs in their vacation home. However, the structure couldn’t go over 16 feet tall and must remain 100-square-feet in size.

With these specifications in mind, Trim Studio began constructing the Galiano 100 in a secluded area in Vancouver. They made the home northeast-facing and installed floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors in front. Above the entrance, they installed large windows.

The interiors of the Galiano 100 give off an airy vibe. The designers chose a mostly light-neutral palette for the inside and accented it with black lower cabinets in the kitchen. The combination of this aesthetic and natural lighting makes the space appear a lot bigger than it actually is.

To make the most of the limited space, Trim Studio used footage-saving strategies. The bathroom is under the stairs, and the bedroom is on the second floor. Any illumination is installed in the ceiling as well.

Because the pair is likely to spend a lot of time outside due to the natural surroundings, Trim Studio made sure that even though the Galiano 100 is only a hundred square feet, it has plenty of outdoor features.

A wood porch with an outdoor shower, grill, and log storage is available on the site. A secondary terrace with a jacuzzi and Adirondack chairs is located just past the front stairs and is ideal for resting.
