Depends on size, features and complexity of the design.
Call Rich and he can talk to you about what your cabin might cost,
or email throught the contact link.
Yes. The only limitation is the cost of shipping.
Typically I don't use "certified" green materials. But if you require it, I can (and have) built to green specifications. For instance: wool insulation, shielded wire, solid wood construction with no OSB or plywood.
The smaller cabins such as the Camp Cabin, can be pulled with you
own PU truck, but advise against it because they are wide and bulky.
The tongue weight on the larger cabins is can be as much as 5000 lb.
8 wide models are designed to be moved with your own vehicle.
I warrant against manufactures defects.
Yes, I have lots of happy customers. See the testimonial on the home page.
Certainly, but you must purchase at least 2 cabins for display. We do not "floor" cabins.
Typical full sized loft cabin is around 21,000 lb.
Full sized non-loft is roughly 18,000.
Yes, I can install inverters with built-in chargers and batteries. Solar panels can go on the roof or mounted on a pole in the ground that can be turned to follow the sun. Composting toilets, water tanks, holding tanks are all possible, but not necessarily practical when dealing with wider floor plans.
Yes, as long as I know the dimensions.
No, I charge more for drywall.
Not very often do I build just shells. For some cabin designs it is quite easy to build only a shell, and for others it is not possible. A shell is defined as bare stud walls with no wiring, plumbing, insulation with the roof and exterior done.
Perhaps. Some cabins are easy to build, while others are difficult. I will sell you the plans and materials if you like
Yes, my fee is $1500
8-12 weeks typically, and depends on what my work load is.

That would be fine with me, but not necessarily with the county you live in. If you are concerned about such laws, you may want to consider inquiring at the county planning dept. It truly depends on who answers the phone at the planning dept. and the county you want to place the cabin in.
15 years building cabins
If you are realistic about the "cost to expection ratio", then I can build within your price range.
Typically not, however, it is within the realm of possibilities if it is something I can use.
No I don't have a catalog.
Buy 3 or more of the same model with no changes.
No. I can point you in the right direction.
Most banks have RV loan programs. For commercial ventures, you might qualify for a lease program through leasing companies.
Usually around $6.50 per mile. To the east coast is around $14,000. I have no control over the cost of trucking other than by soliciting bids from multiple companies. I suggest you do the same.

I might, if it is local and I have the time.
No, just a level, compacted surface.
Hard to say. You need to check with the local planning dept. to know with certainty.
Only if we can turn it into a vacation (Hawaii for instance).
Not likely. Our drivers are very good and go the extra mile to make sure your cabin is delivered safely.
