“It’s a three-bedroom, 1,506-square-foot new construction rambler on the Nisqually Indian Reservation.”

“It’s the first structure in a major development slated to bring 60 single-family homes and duplexes and a 40-unit apartment complex to the tiny reservation near Yelm, about 15 miles east of Olympia.
