The Cottage shares a small urban lot with another home, both referred to as Olybungalows. We bought the homes in 2000. Known as the party houses on 5th, they were a notorious rental property for years. . We deconstructed the homes over the years and remodeled using local wood and natural finishes. We endeavored to use reclaimed building materials as much as possible. We did most of the work ourselves, learning as we went. We lived in the homes for years and began to raise our family there. However, after the birth of our second child, we began bursting out of the walls and decided to move up the street to a more family-size home. We have been renting the homes as guest houses for the past 2 years. We enjoy sharing the special spaces with travelers. Close to what Olympia has to offer the bugalows offer a relaxing oasis from which to explore from.
