All our kits are designed for a Do-It-Yourself assembly. A detailed instructional manual and illustrations are included with each kit. All the materials of the cabins are pre-cut and ready to be assembled, which makes the work easier and less time consuming. It should take about two to four days for the smaller models to be assembled by two people. During the installation process, if you have any questions or difficulties, we can always assist you via phone, email, or Skype.
The foundation material and roofing shingles can be added as an option for your kit.
If you do not feel comfortable assembling the cabin kit yourself, our trained and experienced installation crew is more than happy to install the kit for you. As part of our installation services, we offer to return after six months once the structure has settled to the new environment to make sure it is level and all the doors and windows are in good, working condition. Please contact us for installation prices.

You can view an assembled cabin in Garfield, NJ where we have a Weekender demo model.
Weekender is the smallest of our cabin kits, but it gives a good idea of the wood fiber, the quality of the product, and how these cabins are assembled.
Our larger models have an optional insulation package available that includes insulation for the floor, roof, and walls. However, the cabins do not need to be insulated when used only during the summer months. If planing to use the cabin for three seasons, we recommend insulating the floor and the roof to make the cabin more energy efficient. If the floor and the roof insulation is not sufficient, the wall insulation can be added late on. Depending on the cabin, but most of the time, the space is quite small and can easily be cooled down or heated up. The most used heating option for cabins is electrical heater that is easy to install and does not need a lot of maintenance.

Electricity and Plumbing
All of our cabins can be upgraded by installing electricity and plumbing. Most of our customers have turned larger models with multiple rooms into a kitchen and/or bathroom. A professional electrician and/or plumber might be needed for that work.
The foundation is a very significant part of assembling your cabin correctly. It is important that the base is steady and leveled with good ventilation. There are several foundation options that you can use to install your cabin on.
1) Concrete blocks with pressure treated timbers. This foundation option is ideal if you would like to insulate your cabin’s floor.
3) Concrete slab.
