Insulated for 4-season use
The Wheelhouse Micro Cabin is a fully self-contained dwelling, for short-term rentals, guest accommodation, or your own weekend getaway.
The Micro Cabin has a sleeping loft for 2, a kitchenette and a full bathroom; It is fully insulated for maximum comfort - add a mini wood stove for all-season warmth and cosiness.
This versatile Micro Cabin can serve as an auxiliary dwelling unit (ADU), guest house, cabin getaway or studio space. The under 200 sq ft footprint means it fits nicely just about anywhere and the simple interior layout keeps the space feeling open and uncluttered, no matter how you enjoy it.
The detailed construction drawings include pier & beam foundation details, floor plans, exterior elevations, framing details, wall, floor and roof sections, and a window & door schedule.
The following is for informational purposes only.
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.
