Orcas Island Tiny House gem

Orcas Island CottageOne of my favorite Tiny Homes that I’ve discovered is this cabin by architect, David Vandervort. This one features refined finishes and millwork. It is located on Orcas Island, one of Washington’s San Juan Islands, surrounded by madrone trees and towering cedars.

The cabin is a 400 ft2 (37 m2) gable-roofed structure with lean-to extensions on either side. All four corner were notched out to create a cross-shaped floor plan. The corner notches are used for the entry porch, firewood storage and small covered sitting areas.

I love the interaction between indoors and outdoors. Although I’m often not fond of an all wood interior, there’s a simple elegance to this design. It is tops on my lists….partly due to the architecture as well as the location.
