Discover the Unforgettable Experience of Building Your Dream Cabin!
Hi, my name is Casey 👋 In 2020 I built a 100m2 cabin with my dad, with absolutely no formal building experience:
Step into the world of do-it-yourself cabin creation, where dreams come to life with every timber placed.
The allure of building a cabin from scratch lies not just in the physical construction but in the dream it represents.
Every shot of the nail gun, every carefully measured cut of wood, breathes life into a dream that's been nurtured for a very long time coming.
Through this process, you become a student and a master. You learn carpentry skills, understand the nuances of how a building is built, and become intimately familiar with every inch of your creation.
With each challenge faced and conquered, you grow – not just as a builder, but as a person.
Not only did we see the huge benefit of getting a cabin at a very reasonable price but since that moment we have never been closer.
It was an experience that I'll never forget... As the cabin rises, so do the memories.
It's not just a structure; it's a testament to shared moments, laughter, and the joy of working together. The hours spent with family or friends, laboring over the blueprint or raising walls, become part of the cabin's essence.
A cabin is more than a shelter; it's a connection to nature. The tranquility of a quiet forest or the scenic beauty of a mountainside becomes an integral part of your everyday life. It's an invitation to slow down, breathe in the fresh air, and cherish the simplicity of life.
And finally!... When the last nail is in place, and the last coat of paint dries, the joy is unparalleled.
The satisfaction of standing back and marveling at something you've created – it's a feeling of accomplishment that transcends words.
Building a DIY cabin isn't merely constructing a structure; it's an odyssey of discovery, growth, and fulfillment.
It's about weaving dreams into reality, creating memories, and crafting a haven that embodies your essence.
At Cabin Plans, we're not just about cabins; we're about empowering you to manifest your vision and savor the satisfaction of your creation.
The only reason that it was achievable for us is because I created a step by step guide which broke each step down into a really small and manageable chunk.
This was years ago now and the idea of these step by step guides has evolved massively since I created the first one. Now they are made to a really high standard and in consultation with experts.
The DIY guides are applicable globally so they work with timber thicknesses in any country and still show exactly how to build the cabin.
You can get one of them for any of the designs on this website!
This is how easy our DIY Guides and Materials Lists are
Our guides will run you through every step of the construction and break every part down into small and very manageable steps!
It's just like building Lego... but much bigger, more rewarding and at the end you get an asset that you'll use forever!
Every page has:
- a 3D image so you can see where each part goes on the building!
- a 2D image with measurements so you can see how to build each step!
- And a paragraph of text to explain what to do!
The materials list is broken up into steps that coincide with the step-by-step DIY guide!
Telling you the length of all the timber pieces to use, other materials that are needed and how to use all materials that are involved!
This comes as:
- The staged timber order - making ordering your timber easy!
- The glazing order - To tell you the windows and sizes!
- And the full materials list - Telling you a full organized list of everything - so you can easily purchase what you need, as you need it!
