Imagine, if you will, that every weekend you leave the hustle and bustle of your life to enjoy time in your cabin in the woods. You sit there for hours just enjoying the peace and quiet of it all. You have no neighbors, no road noise, and can see nothing but wilderness and wildlife for miles.
It Sounds peaceful, serene, and a place where family memories and rest can be enjoyed for a LONG time.
Now let’s come back to reality. Unfortunately, you realize that this is still just a dream, but it doesn’t have to be that way for long!
It sounds like what you might be looking for is a cabin that can be built in the great unknown of the woods or lake. Just like all of the adventures you have had so far in life, they started as a dream before they were able to become a reality.
Let’s talk about how purchasing a portable cabin could be a fantastic means of achieving this dream.
How long does it take to get to my cabin?
We have already figured out that you have been looking for a cabin. However, you may have gotten lost in all the muck and mire of what a traditional builder is trying to offer you. While the builder can offer great customization, what they are not able to do is get your job done quickly.
If time is a big concern to you, and you know you do not want to be on some waiting list that takes years and years to finally get what you have been wanting, a portable cabin can greatly speed up the process
Get you to your dream cabin this year, not in years! From start to finish our portable cabins can be created and on your property quickly! Usually within weeks, not months or years! (Call us for more specific details about our lead time as the supply chain supply can vary these times).
Having said that a quick solution isn’t a good solution if you don’t like your cabin. So lets talk about some of those differences.
What is the difference between a Portable Cabin and a traditional cabin?
So when you hear the words portable cabin what comes to your mind?
A tent, a luxury camper, or maybe even glamping?
While we don’t blame you for letting your mind go there, portable cabins are much different from that.
A portable cabin is a cabin that is built on a skid foundation that is similar to a shed. However, unlike a normal shed, our portable cabins include the ability to have a lofted area for sleeping as well as a porch to allow for enjoying those evening sunsets and morning sunrises. Imagine having your cabin in the woods let you see the sunrise like you never have before.
A traditional cabin will take years to build out the way you want it and will require a substantial foundation. However, our portable cabins do not require that kind of foundation commitment by any means. Our portable cabins actually do best when placed on a gravel pad to allow for the appropriate drainage. Gravel foundations are not costly to install. Site prep has some great resources on installing a gravel pad.
Key Points To Think about before Buying a portable cabin
As an educated consumer, you want to weigh the pros and cons of the bigger purchases in life. When you are trying to build your cabin in the woods you are wanting it to be of the highest quality and customization options.
A portable cabin built by a reputable builder should offer the following advantages for design:
Totally customizable building options
1. Size options
Everyone will have different needs for their sizing, and every builder will be different. For example, at Quality Structures, our sizes are from 8×12 all the way up to 16×48 feet. If you are in need of something larger than 800 square feet, you will probably have to go with a traditional stick-built cabin.
2. Color Options
When getting a portable cabin, make sure that you work with a builder who can get you the color you need. Your setting is not cookie-cutter, so your cabin should not be either.
3. Window and Door placement options
Every piece of land is different, so make sure you are working with a responsive builder who will let you choose the exact layout and design of your cabin when it comes to where you place the doors and windows.
4. Quality of Building Standards
Whether we are talking about the roof or the framing, only go with a portable cabin builder who is building your cabin solidly according to residential building standards. An example of this, is ensuring that the studs are placed 16 inch on the center.
By offering all of these high-quality options not only do you have the ability to design what you want but you can get it faster than you ever thought possible.
