The guest house at buoy bay was the prototype that launched the Cottage Series, one of eight pre-design series offered by Method Homes. It’s located at the south end of Orcas Island, one of the San Juan archipelago off the Washington State Coast. Architect Christopher Rost hopes his collaboration with Method Homes will open up opportunities in residential prefab.

The Buoy Bary guest house became the template for plan 1 of the Cottage Series. At 1,484 square feet, it’s one of the smallest floor plans. The layout features two bedrooms, two baths, and a pair of built-in sleeping lofts: a covered porch, deck and upstairs balcony complete the Craftsman-style package.
