Element 1 is a small prefab home by Chris Pardo Design that serves as a vacation cabin in Washington. The tiny one-bedroom and one-bathroom unit sits on a waterfront property, which is why the design includes details like a deck and full glass windows for taking in all that the scenery has to offer. The entire house is long and fairly low to the ground, which is emphasized by the horizontal wooden paneling that wraps around the structure.
From the inside of the unit, its tall windows make it seem as if there is hardly any separation between you and the outside world. After it was designed, the cozy prefab cabin was manufactured by Methd Homes.
