Small Cabin Pressure Release

Ross Chapin took these images of a tiny retreat located on Whidbey Island in Washington. The one-room cabin, with a sink just outside the entryway, is only 96 square feet (8x12). All the wood for the place was sourced from downed trees, salvaged logs, or previous construction projects. It was designed and built by Kim Hoelting of Live Edge Woodworks. Kim speaks of the pressure release his small cabins provide: “They’re great small spaces, as home offices, guest cabins, writer’s escapes, or simply an area to have in your backyard to unburden domestic space."
