With the cabins from Green Garden Chicken, no interior finishing is needed for this Courtyard cabin. Everything is included in the price. The cabin is 26 feet by 16 feet, with one bedroom area, a bathroom, living room and a possible kitchen area. The diagram on their website also shows this log house being used as an office building with desks and sofas placed in the different areas of the unit. The cabin is 257 square feet in total which is quite small, but it would be great to use as a small guest cottage or vacation cottage.
The small cottages from Green Garden Chicken are all created with high-quality Nordic Spruce timber from sustainable tree farms where five trees are planted for every tree that is used. Trees are a wonderful renewable resource providing these high-quality natural materials for us to use in building projects. Wood cabins and homes are some of the most sturdy structures known to man, they have been able to stand up to some of the most intense weather like hurricanes, high winds, and even earthquakes. Another reason why people love building with logs and wood so much is that it's an all natural building material that is healthy to live in. The wooden walls in this log house promote a sense of wellbeing and comfort; wood is generally a more sustainable and eco-friendly material to build with too. Small cottages are also a very eco-friendly option because they use less energy to heat and power them, plus they cost you less to build and less to maintain over the years. People who have always dreamed of having a little cabin could actually afford to own one at this price.
Each cabin comes with the wood to build the cabin and a covered terrace which is an optional add-on. Although it would be a nice thing to provide in the cabin to give yourself more livable space outdoors. The kits also come with the floor and roof construction materials, the pre-hung and glazed door and window, pre-assembled gables and all of the hardware including nails, screws, handles and door lock. It comes with a set of comprehensive instructions, and everything will be labelled for convenience and to make building easier. Building one of these simple cottages on your own would be very easy especially if you had the help from another person. Even if you've never built anything before and you have no carpentry knowledge, the manufacturers make the cabins very easy to assemble, so no prior experience or knowledge is needed. Although, if you do have some previous building experience you will find the process that much easier. If you have another design in mind, you can always talk to the company and see if you can customize a plan or create your own custom cottage plans.
