Bonnie’s new floating tiny house is a vision of extreme minimalism. It was designed for people who want to experience living with the bare necessities for a short period of time, and who want to enjoy the peacefulness of a quiet retreat on the water.
You can check out The River Zen cabin in Wakefield Quebec! More information available here:
Bonnie also rents out The River Den, a bigger houseboat, which is also currently our most popular video of all time. Take a tour here:
And check it out on Airbnb here:
The River Zen is an 8’x10′ micro cabin built on pontoons that can freeze into the ice in winter, making it a 4-season cabin. It’s heated with a Martin propane heater, and there are 2 propane tanks on the bank with a double regulator.
The cabin is completely off-grid so it has no electricity, only battery- and solar-powered lights.
For cooking, there is an outdoor box with a butane camping stove, dishes, and fresh water.
The bed is a foam mattress that is secured to the wall using bungee cords to keep it out of the way during the day, and the seating area has Thai yoga massage mats and a drop leaf table.
Thanks for watching!
