All About The Vermont Cabin
The Vermont Cabin is elegant, versatile, and made to last. We take pride in building it with beefy 8×8 mortise and tenon joinery from high quality lumber. This winning combo of looks, functionality, and durability has made this our most popular design by a long shot! This majestic cottage features an open floor plan with high ceilings and a full-sized loft that practically doubles the square footage of the building, maximizing your living space and storage potential. The Vermont Cabin comes standard with four windows, with several options for window placement. You can even add additional windows to maximize the natural light in this gorgeous cabin.
Customizing your space is easy with the Vermont Cabin. The full-sized loft comes standard, but if you’d like your ground-level to feel more spacious, you can always opt for a 2/3 loft for a 30ft cabin or 3/4 loft for a 40ft cabin. Choosing a ladder instead of stairs can offer you a little more space, if needed. Thinking you might want some extra light? Add shed dormers or doghouse dormers to illuminate your loft and create a more open, relaxing space.
Want an even BIGGER Vermont Cabin? You can also add a porch, enclosure, or overhang to your building*. Adding an enclosure will expand the livable space of your cabin, adding to the over-all floor plan. And of course, a porch will make the perfect place for you to sit in your favorite chair or hammock and watch the world go by. If you’ve got questions, get in touch with our sales team — they can help you customize the building you’ve been dreaming of.
This charming one-room cabin is brimming with possibilities. Turn it into an off-grid dream home, a rustic tiny house, a camping or vacation cabin, guest house, Airbnb, or even a deluxe art studio or workshop! We sell this building as a Pre-Cut Kit for you to assemble on site with our easy-to-follow instructions. Many options are available for insulation based on your needs. For uninsulated options, pick the frame only or complete shell Pre-Cut Kit. Or, if you need extra warmth and protection, opt for the 3-season or 4-season Pre-Cut Kit. The Vermont Cabin Pre-Cut Kits are manufactured by our team of skilled craftsman in the USA, and ship nationwide. If you are more of the DIY type, you can purchase the step-by-step plans that will help you build your own cottage from the ground up!

What is a Complete Shell and What Comes With It?

Hardware, millwork sheathing and DIY plans have been enclosed. Each piece is color coded and part numbered. The exact itemization of what is inserted can be found on the specifications tab of the website for each product page design.
What is the difference between a 3-Season and 4-Season Insulation package?
