We built a lightweight DIY cabin that is designed to fit together in a single day. This makes it a great low-cost option for those wanting to build their very own cabin, especially in remote areas where it is difficult to haul in heavy materials.
We used a snowmobile to transport our cabin materials to the build site, where we assembled them. Our building materials consisted of: barn boards, 2″x4″ lumber, cedar strapping, tarp, vapor barrier plastic, and screws.
We built the cabin upon 3 small cedar logs, which came from a nearby fallen tree.
