Guest House - 7 Affordable Options for Everyone - Bob Vila

We offer custom-designed one-story house kits at affordable prices. We would be glad to talk with you about your ideas and requirements for a one-story home or cabin.

Our one-story house/cabin kits are ideal for a vacation cabin, ski lodge, studio, guest house or year-round home. They are equally adaptable for commercial uses - camp bunkhouse, ski trail shelter, pool cabana - and many more. Our cabin kits are expandable - you can add additional kits at any time to build a larger house.

Our most basic model is a 12' x 12', shed roof cabin that is available with optional Decks or Porches. We began producing this kit in 1970.

Our cabin kits include all of the materials required to construct a weather tight shell on your foundation: hardware, fasteners, framing, sheathing, sub-floors, roofing, flashing, drip edge and trim. Windows and doors are not included in the base kit price, but are available as options. All materials are hand selected, carefully cut to precise dimensions and labeled with a part number. A small amount of siding must be cut at the site. An illustrated Construction Manual describes each step, from the construction of a foundation to the installation of the roof, all in simple, easy-to-understand language. Options include skylights, dormers, higher ceilings, and our double-stud wall framing system to allow for more insulation. We do not include any interior materials, except sub-floors.
