A pair of tiny cabins watch sunsets on Vashon

Why have one tiny when you can have two?

Four hundred square feet are enough if they’re used right. Don’t be surprised if the normal details don’t describe the reality of this pair of tiny cabins on Vashon.

The two tiny cabins on this property were built in 2013—much more recently than many old cottages on the waterfront. They may look rustic, but that’s on purpose.

In one, rich, wood-plank vaulted ceilings cap a bright white interior dominated by the views through the windows.

The kitchenette is set back, though not by much considering the size of the space, and is equipped with slab counter tops and modern fixtures. Every wall seems to sprout shelves and cupboards for storage—every space is important in a tiny.

The other tiny is white throughout with a vaulted ceiling in a single peak, with no exposed woodwork is hidden. Bunk beds suggest it’s designed for smaller guests.

While there may be three or four beds in the photos, the houses have no private bedrooms, no traditional bathrooms, and no septic—they’re nearly off-grid, one step in between a cabin and a yurt.

The houses may be tiny, but the lot is not. Welcome to the luxury of a sunset views from more than half an acre, bordered by 128 feet of waterfront—the best part. Put it all together and find a price of $325,000 and a place to retreat and relax.
