Doe Bay Cabin in Washington!

Who wouldn’t want a peaceful, lovely cabin on Orcas Island in Washington? The Doe Bay Cabin, by Heliotrope Architects, looks like a calm place to unwind. I mostly wanted to post about this cabin because there is a very clever design idea by the stairs but it just so happens that the rest of it is really neat too.

One house set in such peaceful surroundings. Deep breath, exhale….. ahhhhh.




The interior is kept very simple and clean.


Now, here is the clever design idea, in my opinion. I love that the last step doubles as a bench off to the side and shoes can be stashed under the whole bench/step (without getting in the way); then above the bench part is a short closet that can be used for coats and such. This is a very multi-functional small space. Well done.


Beautiful bathroom with a pretty view of the treetops.
