Tiny House Nirvana!
So I plan to park my tiny house at the fabulous Capilano River RV Park in West Vancouver, very nearly under the gorgeous Lion's Gate Bridge. Why? Why would you do that, Little Miss Crow, when it's pricey, not in Vancouver, and pretty much under a bridge?
It's true that an average (summer rates and winter rates) of $1000 a month is more than I would like to pay, but living without any roommates in Vancouver will cost you that, minimum, unless you like further dampening a creepy basement suite with your unstoppable tears. Or sleeping with a shotgun to ward off hungry hungry bed bugs.
And that def would not include living next to a boss river and having a pool and hot tub. And totem poles.

Will it be loud and hectic, and periodically filled with dumbasses? Probably, but I currently live right downtown, between the West End and Coal Harbour and that is all day, every day, and I sleep right through it. Thanks 33 rated earplugs and bedside fan!
Will I have the glass-breaking squeals of yolos wearing lead Uggs and Axe by the bucket above me or home theatre Michael Bay filmfests below me? Nope. Because I own my roof and floor. And most of my neighbours only stay a few days at a time. And I suspect most will be middle-aged or older, and will be out looking at touristy stuff while I'm busy sleeping during the day. Night-time noise will be happening when I'm either working or awake all night on my nights off. Nightwalker win!
Of course, not guaranteed they'll have a spot for me when I need it, but I'll work on that closer to September. There were probably only at 50% capacity when I was there today so if that's off-season normal it should be alright.
