Now with the approval of Senate Bill 5383 and the provisions of tiny homes in Washington, there are more options for small homes on the islands. One company that is creating amazing tiny homes on foundations and skids is Cascadia Homesteads.

The cabins and timber frame homes are all under 2,500 square feet.
Along with designing and building cabins and homes under 2,500 square feet, Cascadia also assists with excavation, land clearin, and green property development on Orcas Island. Orcas is the largest island in the San Juan Island group about three hours north of Seattle.
