What is a Modular Cabin?

A modular, or prefab, cabin is a cabin that is not built on-location. They are, instead, built off-site in a climate-controlled warehouse to the customer’s specifications. Then, the cabins are delivered to its final destination and permanently installed. Larger cabins will be built in sections and finish construction on-site.

If you opt to add plumbing and electricity, some finishing work will need to be done to connect your utilities. Other than that, you could move in and sleep in your modular cabin the same day they’re delivered! Modular cabins truly are the easiest solution to building a weekend getaway or vacation home.

Not a Cabin Kit

Modular cabins are easily confused with cabin kits, but they are not. Cabin kits are often cheaper but that comes at a huge cost. You are responsible for building your own cabin with a cabin kit, whereas a modular cabin is expertly built by Amish home builders.
