Making Your Backyard Work For You.

Key Features

We Handle Everything

We have thoughtfully designed the entire process, from ordering to install. Once you’ve ordered your Kabin our team handles all the permitting, site preparation, foundation, utility connections, construction, installation, site clean-up, and final inspections. You don’t have to worry about hiring or coordinating anything. 

Environmentally Friendly

All of our Kabins are certified 4-star BuiltGreen. Starting with our high-tech foundation system that allows almost all of the existing landscaping to stay in place, we build the Kabin itself from renewable resources supplied locally. Designed to our specifications, components are fabricated for lower cost and lower waste than traditional construction. We use energy-efficient LED lighting, zero air gap wall insulation, and low VOC paints.

Low Price

Our unique approach to designing a cottage from the ground up allows us to offer a beautiful high quality product at a very affordable price. Because we do everything we can offer an installed price up front with no need to worry about hidden costs or change orders down the road. You will spend MUCH less on your Kabin than on any other method of putting in a backyard cottage.

Designs And Options

We have multiple designs so you can get the Kabin that fits your needs, with interior and exterior options to suit your personal style. Lots of colors or we can match to your existing home.  We’ll be happy to review all the Kabin options and answer any questions.

Which Kabin is Right For You?

Why We’re Different

Foundation Technology

We are building smarter, from the ground up. Our exclusive Karry Beam foundation system removes the need for heavy machinery and pouring concrete. This superior method lowers costs and reduces your environmental impact.

Energy Efficient

The entire process is designed for energy efficiency. We utilize a locally sourced green building product for our floor, walls, and roof structure that has a solid core of graphite polystyrene insulation. Resulting in a more comfortable energy efficient space than traditional construction methods.

Quick Installations

We’ve designed our Kabins with installation in mind. By using local resources and suppliers, and our unique low environmental impact foundations, most homes have a ready to move in Kabin in as little as 6 weeks. With MyKabin, we take care of it all with minimal disruption to your life.

The Urbanist

In Pursuit of the Affordable Backyard Cottage

Last summer when the Seattle City Council passed legislation that encouraged development of backyard cottages across the city, the move was generally met with enthusiasm from housing advocates promoting increased housing choices in the city’s single family zones.

Seattle’s New ADU Rules May Ease Affordable Housing Crisis

This summer the Seattle City Council took a step toward easing the affordable housing crunch in the city, which is filled with single-family neighborhoods. New legislation eases the rules around building accessory dwelling units in single-family zones, a designation that makes up 60% to 65% of the city.

How a game of cards launched a Seattle-area backyard cottage company

Following years of political and legal battles, Seattle this summer loosened restrictions on the development of backyard cottages, yet they remain relatively expensive to build. A new Bellevue company, MyKabin, has engineered a workaround to streamline development.

Getting a backyard cottage is easier than you think

Ronnie Cunningham is a longtime resident of Madison Valley. He’s lived in this house since 1975. Now a few steps away sits his new baby – a cozy MyKabin cottage. “We have a relatively good-sized lot, it’s a 5,900 square foot lot ” he said. “We weren’t using the space, it was just a garage that was storing a bunch of stuff.”

To Our Valued Customers and Community:

With the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we want to share the measures that MyKabin is taking to help protect our clients, communities, and employees as safety is one of our top company priorities. Effective immediately, we will be limiting contact both at homes and in our showroom in order to implement best practices in controlling the spread of the virus. We are remaining open, however, we do request that you contact us in advance to arrange a showroom visit. Also, in order to keep everyone protected during on-site visits, we ask that you meet us outside of your property. We will continue to maintain acceptable (6ft or more) social distancing. We also encourage everyone to evaluate their own health and personal risk factors before requesting or accepting appointments.

We are fortunate that our work can continue safely under the current conditions, so we're going to keep building great houses as long as we possibly can.  Hopefully that can sustain a little normalcy in the lives of our clients and team.

There are many agencies and businesses that we rely on to complete our work that have already implemented measures to address the current situation. As municipalities reduce staff hours, we may see increased delays in permit processing, inspections, and so forth. We’ll do our utmost to keep our customers and clients informed of any changes that may impact them. We are all doing our best to navigate these uncertain and rapidly changing times.

We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we work to get through this together. We will strive to work with as little disruption or delay as possible, and with the safety of one another as our primary concern. These are challenging times, but as always, we continue to work hard to serve the needs of our community and clients.

Our best to you and your families,

G. Clint Jones
CEO, MyKabin
