Prefab Cabins vs. Cabin Kits
Deciding to add a cabin to your life can be a big decision. You might be quickly faced with the choice of going with a prefabricated cabin or a cabin kit. While both might seem like good options, a cabin kit is often a much bigger hassle than you might think.
Here at Ormeida Cabins, we are experts when it comes to cabins. Here is everything you need to know about Prefab cabins and why they are the superior option.
Cabin kits are often much more expensive than they initially seem. Cabin kits can be riddled with hidden fees and the costs only pile up more as the cabin is built. On top of it all, you’re likely going to hire a contractor to help build the cabin. As the project moves forward, you’ll find that hiring help to build it is far more expensive than you initially thought.
With a prefabricated cabin or prefab cabin, you will know the final cost upfront. This means you won’t have to worry about hidden fees, paying for supplies, or hiring help. The process is much easier and usually less expensive.
Higher Quality Control
If you decide to go with a cabin kit, you will quickly realize that you’re going to have your work cut out for you. Although they often come with detailed instructions, even for an experienced contractor, they can prove to be challenging to put together. While the quality of the materials will likely be high, it won’t matter unless you have someone who is experienced. Essentially, you could end up making a poor cabin with quality material, wasting both time and money.
This is one of the key perks of a prefab cabin. With a prefab cabin, you will always know what the final product is going to look like. Each cabin is always prebuilt with the same process and same materials, so you won’t encounter any surprises.
On paper, putting together a cabin kit sounds like a fun project. Armed with the right tools and experience, the project can go smoothly. However, unless you have hired help, the project can only move along as long as you’re available. You may quickly find that putting together a cabin kit is very time-consuming. And as other things start to come up in your life, you’ll have to have put your cabin aside for a while so you can address other responsibilities. Now you have an unfinished cabin sitting on your property exposed to the elements where it could become damaged.
