Floating homes began as logging camps

May 18, 2018

Floating homes are a part of the fabric of British Columbia’s history and current economy. With origins in floating logging and fishing camps along the coast of the province, floating homes provide an alternative to crowded city spaces, connecting residents with a close knit community and the natural environment around them. 


In the late 1880s logging companies moved along the BC coast harvesting wood. Because road building was more challenging in those days, camps were built on floats, and moved along the coast to follow the harvest. This was the birth of the floating home in BC.
