the Raven Mini - 210 sq.ft.
The Raven Mini is a tiny version of the original RavenHouse cabin design — and with a 108 square foot (10m²) footprint, it does not require building permits in most jurisdictions.*
With a 9 × 12 ground floor, windows everywhere and a skylight over its 12’ x 12’ loft space, there's a lot to love.
Build it as a backyard office, kids play fort, guest bunkie, or workshop; no matter what, it's bound to be the envy of the neighbourhood. Insulate it, put in a mini woodstove, and you can enjoy it year round.
Drawing set includes all four elevation views, two section views, plan views, framing details.
Added Bonus: included is a detail drawing of the original RavenHouse stair design, showing dimensions and required angles to work in the Mini.
Includes a list of required materials.

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.
