the Colorado - 337 sq.ft.
Both modern and nostalgic, the Colorado takes cues from 1970s American ski culture and the iconic A-frame cabins of that era. It has 325 square feet of interior floor area, including an entryway, a main floor living room, full bathroom, kitchenette, lofted bedroom. Elevated on piers, this 16’ x 16’ cabin is set up for long views, with a lighter touch on the land. Tall windows allow natural light to permeate the interior and highlight views. Equip yours with a wood burning stove and the cosiest furnishings for the ultimate getaway experience.
CAD vs PDF? How it works: if you do not wish to make any changes to the design, or your engineer does not require CAD files to do their work, the PDF files are your best, most economical choice.
If you later decide that you need or want the CAD files, be in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll credit you your original purchase price of the PDF version toward the CAD version of the same design.

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.
