Incredible Tiny House Build with abundance of driftwood & powered bicycle generator.


This tiny house is filled with super clever design elements, including some amazing ways of powering the house! From a bicycle generator to an old-fashioned water wheel, builder Phil has not been afraid to try out some unique ideas.


Greatly inspired by the builders of the Pacific Northwest, Phil Reimers wanted to create his own tiny house paradise in Tofino. As an artist with considerable skill in working with wood, Phil was able to capitalise on the incredible resources around him including an abundance of driftwood to build himself an incredible home. 

The tiny house has been constructed in a whimsical fairytale style and is entirely clad with cedar shingles. The homes design allows it to flawlessly fit in amongst the beautiful surrounding forest.


Phil wasn’t afraid to experiment with alternative ways of powering the house. In this instance, he has not only traditional solar panels, but also has a water wheel and a human powered bicycle generator all helping him to keep his batteries charged and the lights on.
