A Cabin in the Woods - By Kim Rak

I recently came across this charming photo of one of Jamaica Cottage Shops first Gibraltar Cabins, back when the only size they made was the 12’ x 20’ (now they have no less than 6 standard sizes to choose from).

The siding has naturally weathered to this idyllic fairy tale patina, the landscaping has grown up around the simple stone foundation, and the optional salvaged door painted red offsets the optional skinned hemlock porch posts perfectly. The optional electrical package is a nice touch for these hidden backyard retreats. Luckily the Gibraltar Cabin is available as a small cabin kit (estimated assembly time – 2 people, 32 hours) for those living far from Jamaica Cottage Shops facilities – they have an excellent *free shipping program for kits. Fully assembled cabins are also available, as well as diy cabin plans for only $50. Check out our selection of small backyard cabins today!
