Costs Generally Excluded in Cabin Cost Estimates

Future Cabin Owners

In order to help understand the costs associated with your log cabin, we have broken the home building material costs into three easy to understand building phases (information provided after this page). However, before we get to the phases of material that effect your cabin costs provided by Cabintek, there are other costs associated with building a complete cabin to move into. The costs associated to the right are potential expenses Cabintek does not include in the three phases of your cabin materials.

We will do our best to provide guidance on the items to the right, but location, customer preference & municipal codes can drive cost variation.

The Woody Building System Phases

We will talk to you about three phases of building your cabin:

Phase 1 - Your Woody Kit – Blueprints, Exterior Log Walls, Vertical Logs/Support, Decorative Timber Rafters & Hardware, Closure Boards, Windowsills, Flashing & Specialty Hardware

Phase 2 - Phase 1 + Roof Structure Framing & Roof Deck, Roof Insulation, Knotty Pine Ceiling, Exterior Doors, Windows, Storage Loft Framing & Deck, Cabin Floor Framing & Subfloor, Floor Insulation If Required, Exterior Deck Framing & Decking – If Required, Gable Finish Material, Interior Wall Framing (Asphalt or Metal Roof not generally included – we recommend local roofing contractors)

Phase 3 - Phase 2 + All other material, utilities & appliances to complete your cabin

We are often asked what will be the total cost of my log cabin. A rule of thumb is 3x the Phase 2 cost. Depending on the cabin and your needs, this number could vary in either direction – the large variable is often labor after completion of Phase 2...back to the value of the Woody Building System, we control the majority of material costs and save you much of the labor time to get you Dried In!

• Interior wall covering (drywall, knotty pine, paneling, etc.)
• Plumbing fixtures
• Lighting fixtures & electrical utilities
