    Cool New cabin project, the perfect wilderness retreat.

    I discovered this Amish saw mill not very far from where I live in Ohio. They build cabins out of local wood they cut at the saw mill at insanely low prices with no tax. They custom built me this cabin and did not charge extra for installing the windows and doors. I have thought out this design for a while and this is perfect.

    Specs.

    size 12x20 (240 sq. feet)
    True 2x4 construction
    seven foot ceilings
    foundation is on runners (portable)

    Cost, (so far)

    cabin $2,100
    windows and door $800
    cost to ship $350

    If the Amish craftsmen built it you can bet it's gonna last a long time. Those guys really know their stuff. The cabin looks great Dan. All it needs are some trees around it and a little lake out front.

    I really like that. You can hang a front porch on it and you're all set.

    Here is a question for you, is the wood dried out? or will there be shrinkage?? Looks good, and it is big enough to live in...I need something like that once I get some land to put it on...it looks great.

    The floor looks like plywood. I guess like the doors and windows it came from outside their community?
