288 Sq. Ft. Waterfront Tiny Cabin with Lot For Sale

This waterfront tiny cabin for sale is on a waterfront lot in Belfair, Washington with 1.77 acres included.

It’s definitely not in move-in ready condition so it needs some work which could be fun.

The structure as of now sits on post and blocks right at the shoreline of the saltwater canal.

It offers amazing views and the water is filled with clams and oysters. Can be a great opportunity to renovate this into an amazing little cabin.

Our big thanks to Joceile Moore for sharing this lovely property and tiny shelter with us!

    Huh. ~scratches head~
    Not sure what to say. Can’t figure out what the photo of the car sitting on the side of the road is all about. I realize that the home is “down the bank” but am wondering if the car sitting where it is qualifies as a ‘parking spot’ or not. I’d sure hate to have my car sitting out near the traffic lanes so that some drunk coming home from a bender can use it for Target Practice! LOL

    I followed the link to Zillow and the advert said, “…the shelter needs more than TLC. ” More likely than not, it will be a Tear-Down and the new owners will simply be building a new ‘shelter’ in that location.

      Couple of things. I believe this is on Hood Canal Salt Water. If so it is grandfathered in for zoning and with the new owners septic is the issue as when I left the business they were trying to require all new owners to comply . If it is tore down it can not be rebuilt. It can only be restored and unless the laws have changes there may be a height limit. Some of these lots have room across the road for parking. For many years a over water structure could only be built on existing pylons or treated posts.

        Hi, Bill: THANKS for bringing to the conversation your deep knowledge and experience of this area. I gained a lot by reading your two comments. Always nice to have another builder being part of Alex’s site. 😀

    Not to mention NOT parking with the driver’s door against the embankment. Often a common parking arrangement in North Carolina, where people insist on building on trout streams right off a highway, but as you say, not good on a blind curve either.
    Perhaps this site is grandfathered in, and as long as the posts are there, it qualifies, otherwise it would be against new waterfront restrictions? I’ve heard rumors some states are actually trying to protect the scenic views for our grandchildren and g-grandchildren.

    Some of these older “cabins” have been “grandfathered” in BUT you can ONLY use the SAME “footprint”—sometimes you can go higher but not larger. And the new reg’s on septic and water regs can be hard to comply with.

    You really need to do your homework on these unless you can fix them up and either use for a weekend place or re-do a bit at a time perhaps if permitting allows.

    Comet stated a lot of points as well. Having sold several of these properties in the past I did some design study on them, with some engineering and design work a lot of cantilever options will make the space livable. Septic is a problem depending on what county it is in and it looks to be in Mason County the easiest on salt water to work with. If there is no height covenant going up a floor and doing a bridge with garage or parking is a good option. Doing the Tiny Texas Houses fix would be optimal. One of Brad’s works would really sing here.

      One of Brad’s cabins would be absolutely awesome here. Thanks Bill.

    You say “The structure as of now sits on post and blocks right at the shoreline of the lake.” It is not on a lake. It is actually on Hood Canal which is salt water and connects to Puget Sound. That is why there are clams and oysters.

      Oops. Thanks Mary. My mistake.
