Without knowing the cubic feet inside the cabin,
the number and type of windows & their exposure
to the compasss directions, I can only say that,
using a very rough "rule of thumb", for Seattle,
you need atleast 32 BTU's per square foot of floor space,
assuming normal 8' high internal walls.
The slab really is not a factor, but if
you had a basement, that would is
the type of windows, the roofing, and it's
color and the attic insulation, and the
overhanging trees that may prevent the sun
from assisting in warming your home.
