A small cabin home that lives big

How to live well in 1,200 square feet: ideas from a jewel-like cabin inspired by its setting

Little cabin
Dominique Vorillon

Beautiful inside and out

This cabin near Twisp, Wash., is packed with ideas for small-home living, from its open rooms, multiple levels, creative details, and outdoor living rooms. 

Ray and Mary Johnston of Johnston Architects (206-523-6150) designed the 1,200-square-foot cabin for their family of 4. 

Every part of it is oriented toward the floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the mountain view of Washington's Methow Valley and the Cascade Sawtooth Mountains.

See how the Johnstons got the most from their square footage.
