Welcome to Tiny Homes, an idea that is more popular with minimalists than with neighborhood associations and zoning boards. We'll point out the fun parts. You'll have to check out the logistics and legalities - but this one is a new, old cabin.
Cabin can be used as a euphemism for shack, but this 1948 cabin on Camano is more iconic than that. It make lack log walls, but it is wood throughout its 504 square feet. There are knots in every surface, except the floor. Real wood, more functional than fancy, but then treated well enough to be appealing. The look works for this 1 bedroom, 0.75 bath cabin. They're asking $339,000 for it and the near acre it sits on. That price also pays for 100 foot of waterfront that looks east to Mt. Baker and the Cascades. Waterfront along the Sound is usually either low-bank (which has easy access to the water, but has to watch out for storm surges at high tide because it is too easy for the water to access the land), or high-bank (which gives tidal protections but has to worry about slides and access to the water.) This lot is high-bank and looks to be set back far enough that the worries (and the view) are kept a bit farther away. If you're trying to get away and find some quiet, sitting by the shore, inside an acre, inside a cared-for cabin might just be the key. There's even a gate that helps you lock out the world.
