This rustic cabin is on San Juan Island in Washington state. Perched on a hill, it has a commanding view over the islands and waterways below. The 672 ft2 (62.4 m2) cabin was designed by architect David Vandervort. The cabin consists of two 2-storey “towers” joined by a single storey living area. The towers are reminiscent of forest fire lookout towers, with wide overhangs supported by knee braces providing shade for the wrap-around banks of windows.
The upper portion of each tower is a sleeping loft accessed by ladder. The towers are connected at the lower level to create an open living/dining/kitchen area. The cabin is off-grid so there is no inside bathroom, and heat is provided by a wood stove.
