This is an amazing option for tiny home dreamers ...
If you’re building a tiny house or a small log home, consider going with a prefab cabin kit for an easier build that you can construct yourself. Prefabricated construction is a great way to build any home design, but especially small house designs since they will be much easier to assemble. There are many different log houses and cabin kits for sale online and all over Canada and the US. These prefabs make cabin building and tiny house building much easier since all of the pieces are premade and ready to be assembled once they are delivered onto your land. You could even find small house design options on wheels if you’re looking for something a bit more mobile. One of the best things you can do when you’re ready to design your own house is to keep it all very simple. Create a welcoming environment but don’t go overboard with spending money on fixtures and finishes. You can even search for discounted items like tiles, hardware and maybe even cabinetry that you can upcycle and use in your prefab small house design.
You can also build your small house design on a basement foundation which may cost a little bit more than a plain slab foundation, but it will also increase the usable space within your home. You can use that space for extra bedrooms, cold storage and even a crafts room. A loft space is also another feature you’ll find in smaller log houses and cabin kits for sale, and they can serve as a storage space or as a nice small bedroom area. Building up not out will save you money, but it will also give you more space inside your small log home or cabin making it feel like a luxury log cabin. Always, another great idea is to implement lots of windows into your space as well which will create the feeling of openness in the small house design. Many prefab cabin builders will also create custom built log cabin designs for you and then work them into prefab kits that you can build yourself. If you’re not too picky about the log cabin designs, you can also buy one of the cabin kits for sale online and save some money on customizing it. Then, you can always add things to the interior as you finish it up on your own. Adding storage and built-in seating with some multifunctional furniture can really help to make the smaller space work for you.
