Most homeowners in Seattle with verifiable income have enough equity in their primary home to get a home equity line of credit for a backyard cottage. We have partnered with HomeStreet Bank who has a loan officer familiar with homeowners wishing to finance a MyKabin. While we encourage you to meet with a qualified lending agent to determine your actual cost, the approximate monthly payment on a 20-year line of credit could be $450 per month.
