I’ve been following the progress of your next book with interest, and the other day found a funky little community made of artists that might fit in well with the subject material. It’s this little fishing village in Richmond BC (Canada) left over from the old days, it’s called Finn Slough, and apparently it’s there illegally and is embroiled in a legal battle for whether the residents can stay. All the shanties are built on stilts over a marsh, and they’re all shake-covered, hand-made, and definitely not to code! I walked past it and thought it looked like something out of your previous books. They have a website https://www.finnslough.com/, but it doesn’t have the best photos of the shanties. It might be worth contacting them? I remember one place had an upside down boat as the veranda, and what look liked salvaged stained glass windows.
