FOR SALE – $69,500 OBO


PLEASE NOTE: THIS PRICE IS FOR THE CABIN ONLY. AS IS. MUST BE MOVED!

Informed by the Japanese Wabi-Sabi aesthetic, emphasizing the beauty of nature and organic forms, including their flaws; the materials were predominantly chosen for their patinas, weathering; and their relationship to Galiano island, and it’s inhabitants.

A ‘character’ building, imbued with local elements, and patinas, the palette and finishing inside evoke more of the same ‘island vibe’ – sun, ocean, forest; not hewn fresh but aged, and with some stories to tell. The structure is informed by and highlights the beauty and natural grain in the wood; aged patinas of the siding and materials used, so that organic flaws become subtle features that underlie the tranquil beauty of the space.

MEASURING 24 ft by 10 ft. This substantial cabin on wheels, was built on a flat-deck trailer base, using traditional timber framing, and post and beam techniques because of the wider size and higher weight baring capacity. The house is all on one level with small storage loft above the bathroom, so ideal for older and less able bodied owners too.

The living room is just over 9’ by 9.5’ and has lots of natural light and a lovely cubic mini grizzly wood stove, which keeps the tiny house very warm. There are exposed posts and beams, and a warm and cosy vibe. The Living room and bedroom are at opposite ends of the home with a hallway separating them with a bathroom on one side and kitchen on the other. Beautiful aged Douglas fir Post & Beam features delineates the different living areas, creating a feeling of light and spaciousness throughout, as there are no sleeping lofts.

The kitchen features new Ikea cabinets in Hittarp design with oak countertops and a ceramic sink with black Ikea faucet. The bathroom is small but features a new Separett composting toilet, and Japanese mini Ofuro-style bathtub, and shower, as well as storage.

Supreme Collective: Passion for Compassion!

You may or may not know, but I use medical marijuana as one of my main medications. And I use it daily, in a variety of forms, from pure CBD, (one of the more powerful cannabinoids for pain seizures and sleep but with no psychotropic properties so won’t get you ‘stoned’), to full spectrum oil, vapes, to edibles, topicals and sometimes I even smoke it! (for appetite stimulation, and breakthrough pain).

It’s my primary medicine, along with a couple of pharma meds, and has the biggest effect on the most symptoms, managing my severe pain, seizures, nausea, migraine and insomnia more effectively than anything else.

Trouble is, it was hard to find good quality, medicinal-grade marijuana at the best of times but even more so now recreational marijuana use has been legalized in Canada.

While I’m thrilled that Canada has made this powerful medicine, and relaxant available to everyone of legal age; it has undoubtedly made it much harder for medicinal users to access clean, medicinal-grade, affordable, cannabis because there are SO many more people buying.

Despite the fact there are literally dozens of new online stores, opening to to fill the gap created by the lack of physical stores. It’s still hard to get premium quality because like everything, not all of these online stores are created equally. Indeed, many of them have nefarious connections, and don’t offer the high quality, medicinal-grade cannabis that sick people REALLY need.

I was using one particular company for the last 18 months before legalization because I found that their productd were consistently of high-quality. However since legalization, the inventory and quality dropped, the prices have gone up, and the quality of service has gone down.

So, that left me hunting for a new supplier. I tried a couple of companies, but found many of the products were not as described on their websites. Often Cannabis oils are processed using solvents and petrochemicals like ethanol, butane or propane, none of which are desirable for medicinal use.

Anyways, after several months and several disappointments, I am thrilled to have finally found a supplier that I can trust, and recommend to other people…

supreme collective, Medinical Cannabis, Cannabis, Marijuana, Medicine, Healing

The Supreme Collective website carries the cleanest, purest, medicinal cannabis products I have found online anywhere! They work with cannabis ‘Artists’ – People at the very top of their game,; producing exquisite cannabis and CBD oils, edibles, concentrates, tinctures, and topicals; as well as premium grade flowers and hash. But it’s not just the quality of the products that sets this company apart; it’s their ethos, and a true passion for compassion, with a dedication to providing the highest quality products, with the best possible support that sets them apart..

Supreme Collective made it so easy for me to find the right products, and offered meaningful advice, with specific recommendations for products to help ease some of my most problematic symptoms, like my seizures and dysautonomia. They even gave me a some products to sample, and the shipping was fast.

One of the things that most impressed me is that Supreme Collective really recognize the responsibility they have to educate, inform, and support cannabis users to make the right choices; ensuring novice and experienced folk alike, understand how to safely experience this beautiful, powerful plant.

So, if you are looking to purchase premium, medicinal-grade, cannabis products in Canada; please do yourselves a favour and check out these guys. You will be well taken care of, and get the very best service, and products on the market, bar none.

I personally recommend the following from Supreme Collective as they helped my severe pain, neurological symptoms, myalgia, migraines, and insomnia, and for medicating without smoking, which is obviously the healthiest way to achieve medicinal effects from this wonderful plant:

Pure Pulls Vapes with Full Spectrum Oil

Galindar 2018

A few years ago, I started making a calendar every year with some of my photographs, as gifts for the family at Christmas. That slowly grew and by 2014, I was producing enough to sell at my old store, Flotsam & Jetsam.

After my health got really bad, I had to stop for a couple of years, but I celebrated 5 years on Galiano September 13th, 2017, so decided to do a FIFTH ANNIVERSARY EDITION with photographs from the last five years.

The GALINDAR, as I like to call it, costs $25.00 CAD, measures 11″ x 17″ and is printed in full colour, on high quality cardstock, with a high gloss finish for vibrancy of colour.

The item can be ordered and shipped to anywhere across Canada or further afield. Please contact me for a shipping quote before you order, in that case.
