With over 700 square feet of free-flowing floor area and a high cathedral ceiling the Tofino feels open and bright, with clear sight lines to the outdoors.
This design is very versatile and well suited to a range of uses: off-grid cabin, lakeside cottage, ADU, backyard studio, office, guest suite, or short-term rental.For off-grid use, there is plenty of roof area for solar panels; a utility room above the bathroom neatly hides electrical and plumbing equipment. The fully insulated floor, walls and roof ensure maximum comfort and low heating costs.
The artist’s renderings and the plans show it on a pier foundation, but you can use almost any type of foundation of your own supplied design, including a full basement, crawl space and slab-on-grade. The photos of an as-built Tofino are courtesy of Silver Mine Cabin, in Kentucky.

How much your cabin will cost to build depends on where you build, who builds it, and your choices of finishing details (high-end, modest, or low-end). All of our designs offer flexibility during planning and during construction to use windows, doors, and interior & exterior finishes that suit your budget and preferences. In the US or Canada, per square foot costs for materials range between US$100 and $250, with professional labour another US$100 to $250 per square foot.
To get up-to-date, locally relevant pricing for the materials that will be required to build your cabin, take your set of plans, no matter where you purchased them, to a building materials supplier to receive a ‘materials takeoff’ and price for everything that they are able to supply. If you are building your cabin yourself, *this* amount, plus another 15% for contingency, is your ballpark cost to build, plus your time.
Complete and even more accurate building budget calculations can be made by a local, experienced builder who has considered all your unique requirements and the building site’s unique characteristics. It can be worth paying a small consultation fee to gain their real-life insights into building costs in your particular area.
