A couple looking to rebuild a family cabin that was originally constructed in the 1950s




Navigated permitting and surrounding environment challenges by rebuilding the cabin within the existing footprint.

The site was challenging from a permitting perspective: The cabin is located next to a bulkhead looking over the Puget Sound. There is a freshwater lagoon that is only 15 feet from the east side of the cabin. There are steep slopes immediately to the west of the cabin. All of these conditions would make locating a cabin in this place impossible if it weren’t for the fact that we had a structure’s footprint grandfathered in. While the cabin was completely rebuilt, including the large masonry fireplace, it was built within the existing footprint.
