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.
Really brilliant design. Very well thought-out for the DIY-er. I would think it would be simple to put a set of plans together to more readily communicate, to the novice builder, just how one could construct a cabin like this on their own. A materials list and a cut-list would be s-o-o-o helpful for the un-initiated in home construction. Folks with an interest in building a project like this would be happy to purchase a set of simple plans along the lines of what I just described. Thanks for the video and for sharing.
Plastic sheet on wood?, hello rot and condensation
