The Cottonwood

Cabin Kit

While the Cottonwood is the most compact model in our array of cabins with garages, it more than compensates with its attention to comfort and undeniable curb appeal. This home design packs a punch with its efficient usage of 2,144 square feet, which divides a 1,480 sq. ft. floor plan into three cozy bedrooms, two practical bathrooms, and an expansive open-concept living space. It also features a generously sized 484 sq. ft. garage and a charming 180 sq. ft. covered porch to soak in your property views.

We use traditional stick-framing and timber rafters to create a sturdy framework for your cabin that results in a spacious, unobstructed interior. With minimal structural posts to work around, you can customize the space according to your specific needs and style. Whether you’re seeking an idyllic vacation home, a warm full-time residence, or a welcoming guest house for loved ones, our Cottonwood could be the ideal fit for your property.
