Ever looked out of your window and seen a big ol’ lake? What about a mother deer and her fawn snackin’ in your garden? If the answer is never, you’re well overdue. Owning a cabin getaway up north or deep in the mountains could be the relaxing yin that your hectic workweek’s yang needs.
But come on, aren’t cabins super-expensive? Well, before you go and get your pipe dream all clogged up, maybe a prefabricated log cabin is your answer.
A prefabricated cabin is, for the most part, the same as a standard cabin. The main difference is that it's built offsite in a climate-controlled area and then moved to wherever you want it.
But don’t think of these as just a bunch of big Lincoln Logs all stacked up into a square. Depending on your builder, you can have a totally trendy modern-designed masterpiece that could even land you a spot on the cover of Kick-Ass Kabins magazine (not a real magazine). The sky’s the limit here.
More like why wouldn’t you buy a prefabricated cabin? First of all, with a traditional cabin, you could spend months and months waiting while your contractor takes day after day off due to rain. But who wants to wait? A prefabricated cabin could be finished in weeks, or it could even be done already and just waiting for you to adopt it.
Secondly, they’re cheaper. And who doesn’t want that? Now of course that depends on a number of things, but in the end, it will typically cost considerably less than a site-built cabin.
And for thirdsies, there's a boatload of design options. The prefabricated market is a big one, and there is no shortage of unique layouts and designs, from the traditional to the modern. The hard part is just picking one.
Like we said, prefabricated cabins tend to be cheaper than your everyday, more traditional cabin. But why? Well, they typically require fewer hours and fewer builders, so the labor savings get passed on to you. Plus, they can be much more energy-efficient than traditional cabins, so you’ll save in the long run too. Bo-nus!
The exact price of a prefab cab (as we like to call them around the water cooler) is going to depend on a number of factors. This includes the company you choose, the location you want, the size you need, and a number of other things. But, in general, you can typically expect to save 10%-20% with a prefabricated cabin.
To start, you can choose to purchase a pre-made prefab, or you can customize your own—your call, bub. But in either case, there are a few things worth knowing, that’s why we have provided these six steps:
