Thank you for your interest in our unique cabin kits. Our business was started as a way to provide an affordable shelter option that encourages simple, low-impact living, in tune with the character of nature.
PROCESS: Contact us to discuss custom options, delivery time frame, cost, and if you’d like to visit our model cabin. Determine if assistance will be needed for assembly, finish work or permitting. Site specific engineer stamped structural and foundation plans are drawn. A contract is agreed to and deposit made to initiate the building process.
PRICING: Basic 20' cabin kit pricing starts at $17,500, plus shipping if delivered outside the Monterey Bay region. Add $3K for finished pine ceiling. Basic 30' cabin kit pricing starts at $35,000.
CABIN KIT: Basic kit provides the engineered shell of the building, with fully panelized wall and roof framing systems. Kit includes all wall panels, with stain-grade or primed exterior, all roof framing panels, exterior trim, hardware and roofing paper for immediate waterproofing. 20' cabin is available with open beam redwood and pine finished ceiling. Interior walls and ceiling are provided open to allow for insulation, electrical or plumbing work. Each cabin is highly customized to your order. Kit does not include doors, windows, insulation, floor framing, foundation or finished roofing material. Cost to finish kit following assembly varies depending on detailing and materials chosen. Cost for custom, finished, turn-key insulated cabins can be as little as $130 per square foot. We are available for hire to assemble and finish kits in the Monterey Bay region.
SPECIFICATIONS: 20' cabin floor plan is octagonal in shape, providing 288 square feet of floor space. 30' cabin is 12-sided and provides 655 square feet of floor space. Standard walls are Douglas fir framed panels, clad with T1-11 siding, at 7'8" interior wall height. Roof framing is redwood or fir 2x6 with plywood sheathing or pine tongue-and-groove planking. Cabin is engineered as International Residential Code (IRC) compliant, with identical structural integrity as conventional wood-framed housing. This meets local building codes in CA, OR and WA. Cabins can be built to meet WUI fire codes.
CUSTOM OPTIONS: Custom options are available for exterior siding and interior ceiling treatments. Ceiling is available in smooth or rough knotty pine, or in a custom option of your choice. Ten foot tall walls are possible to allow for the addition of a loft. All door and window openings are custom sized. Electrical work, plumbing, decking, cabinetry, insulation and other features can be added on site as desired. Room additions are possible for bathroom, storage or kitchen, etc. The open interior floor plan can be divided and finished to match any lifestyle, the exterior can be finished to match any architectural style.
SHIPPING/DELIVERY: Delivery is by truck. Insured shipping outside the state of California is the responsibility of the buyer.
ASSEMBLY: Assembly instructions are included with the kit. 20' kit assembly is typically completed in one day with a crew of four, depending on site conditions. Phone consultation can be made available during assembly. The services of a building contractor may be needed for foundation work, assembly, and finishing of your cabin. We recommend that a skilled builder install doors, windows, and roofing. We offer custom foundation engineering and architectural services as needed. We are available for hire to assemble and finish kits in the Monterey Bay region.
FOUNDATION: Poured concrete pier, eight inch or larger wood poles, post and pier, or concrete slab can be used. Phone consultation is available for help with foundation arrangement. A light-weight semi-permanent foundation can be made on flat grade, in many cases, by using precast concrete piers for smaller cabins.
MAINTENANCE AND LIFESPAN: These cabins have an expected lifespan of over 70 years when properly maintained. Please ask for maintenance recommendations.
