The Chinook

Cabin Kit


With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a 1,172 sq. ft. floor plan, the Chinook is our largest and most comprehensive cabin kit. All of our cabins boast the classic DC Structures heavy timber look, with cedar siding and post and beam construction, but the Chinook comes with a beautiful handcrafted heavy timber truss that makes a bold statement.

In addition to two stories of living and entertaining space, the Chinook includes a 6’ x 10’ second-story deck and a covered porch to wile away the warm summer evenings. Built from only the finest lumber from the Pacific Northwest, this design has the warmth and comfort you would look for in any cabin or vacation home. The natural wood exterior and heavy timber accents will add value to any property. The Chinook also includes all wall framing, sheathing, exterior doors, premium windows from Andersen, and much more.
