This 610 square foot home is built green from all-local wood

San Juan Real Estate

One advantage of living tiny is shrinking your impact on the environment. This 610 square foot cabin’s footprint is itty-bitty—and not just because it’s tiny.

The cabin was built entirely with hand-milled, local wood, including the wide-planked floors and live edge baseboards and siding. None of the wood came from a store.

For an extra-green touch, the home is insulated with denim.

With all the exposed lumber, listing agent Kathryn Bowes tells us that this cabin smells great on the inside.

The innovative inside features large, hand-made sliding doors separating the living area, the bedroom, and the bathroom. Open them up for that airy feeling, or close them for privacy.

In true living-small style, the house has no closets. A small bonus room on the lower level can meet a variety of needs, though—perhaps an office, or a place to keep your kayak.

The best part about this home is also the best part about living on the islands in general: incredible water views and access to the beach. This cabin’s just a block away from the sea.
