Building Oasis


The story of a young man fulfilling a childhood dream as he moves into adulthood, trying to find the balance between two contrasting lifestyles.


Two years ago, Ryan Deska (29) began building a cabin south of the Bruce Peninsula near Wiarton, Ont. It is still a work in progress, with each undertaking providing a new trial, a learning opportunity, and a reason to escape from his life in the city for awhile.


This project has been nourishing for Deska, and the process has inspired him to lead a lifestyle that he can be proud of. As he moves into adulthood, the cabin acts as a canvas to reflect on who he is as a social being, an environmentalist, and a dreamer.
