Spacious And Simple Small Cabin in San Juan Island

Weaver's Studio Exterior

Architect: Prentiss Architects

This 1250 square feet cabin was built in 2010 with cedar cladding and metal panels. I like how they used light and dark colors for accents. The cabin seems to blend in nicely with its surroundings with a modern, natural look.

“The clients, a professional weaver and her husband, nearing a full-time move to San Juan, requested a studio space which would house all of her weaving tools: looms, dying facilities, a sewing/assembly area, and an office. It would also act as a gallery for her work as well as a meeting space for her weaving guild meetings, and in addition to the weaving studio requirements, the clients also requested an overflow bedroom for guests.”

  1. Nice contemporary/modern design!

    Not exactly tiny but still a good size for a small cabin. I like the double glass door but would be better for moderate climates.


  2. Nice!! The big workshop shown is exactly my style with a TH on the other end.

    Being able to live where you work saves so much time/money and the taxes you paid on that money, it’s hard to beat as you only need to do 1/3 the work for the same money in your pocket.

    By the time you add up the costs to work, taxes, etc you are making less than 50% of your salary take home.

    So just work at home and keep it ;^P
