Rainier Traditional in Green Lake

Kevin Moore and Shanna Alvarez have two young children and a third was on the way. As two working professionals, they needed a bit more space to live a little more comfortably. Shanna’s mother was also paying frequent visits and staying with the couple, helping them with the children while they worked, and space was getting a little cramped. Kevin and Shanna settled on the idea of a backyard cottage. After contacting five contractors, they discovered it was more expensive than they thought. Then, they were referred to MyKabin. “They took care of everything. A one-stop shop. The others would give us a base price, but then add in all the options and before you knew it, there was a lot to track and pay for. But MyKabin had one price. It was the type of pragmatic solution we were looking for.”


“We never realized how useful it could be,” Kevin said. “It’s amazing how it’s given us so much flexibility in our lives. And we could not have timed it better with the Covid situation. When everything went into lockdown, our our dear friend and ‘auntie’ to our kiddos moved in and helped with childcare. As both parents and professionals now working from home, this allows us the space and privacy we need to work.”
