While the idea of creating a cool residence like the Cabana Doe Bay doesn't seem to be the most budget-friendly endeavor, the architectural firm Heliotrope Architects was able to design this 97 square meters space on a budget. Located in Orcas Island, Washington, the Cabana Doe Bay is a small cabin with just enough space for peaceful family living.

This woodsy retreat was created as a reflection of the cultural backgrounds of its inhabitants. With touches of Japanese and Chinese culture, the Cabana Doe Bay acts as the perfect custom-made abode for its residents.

Implications - Custom-made products that appear to be tailored to consumers' needs continue to be invaluable in the eyes of picky consumers. Companies that appear considerate of their consumers through the implementation of custom-to-order products will instantly appeal to consumers.
