Building your dream cabin can be one of the greatest investments that you could ever make for you and your family. A dream cabin is an instant get-away destination! But when it comes time to deciding what type of cabin you want to build, there are lots of things to consider. Here are our five tips to consider when preparing to build your dream cabin:
Scope out any of the possible locations of where you want your dream cabin to be located. Is there any specific landmarks or parks that you want to be near? When it comes to location, think about what you envision yourself doing at the cabin. Do you want something quiet and secluded? Or would you rather be in an area where there is a little bit more to offer with a small town feel close enough to a larger city? What types of hobbies would you like to do at your cabin? Think of the all the outdoor possibilities of fishing, skiing, hiking and other outdoor activities that you might enjoy when thinking of the location.
How do you want the exterior to look? Do you like the rustic old-school look and feel of a log cabin? Or would you prefer more of a modern looking cabin? There are lots of options a builder will be able to provide you with, so it’s good to have at least a general idea of what you would like your cabin to look like.
3- Interior Design:
There are so many options when it comes to the interior design of your cabin. Options of what type of paint, window coverings, flooring, lighting, and much more. Chances are you want your cabin to have a certain cozy feel that differs from any other properties that you may have. After all, it is a cabin. Not something you find in just random neighborhoods throughout the country.
4- Floor Plan:
The floor plan is very important. You want to make sure that you have a floor plan that is going to work for you and your family, as well as grow with your family’s needs. If you have a larger family, or plan on hosting large events or get-togethers, you want to be sure you select a floor plan that offers a nice, open floor plan. Another thing to consider is how many bedrooms and bathrooms you would like, including extra bedrooms for potential guests, as well.
5- How Much Land:
Try to have a general idea of how much land you want around your cabin, including the sq. feet of the cabin itself. Do you have dreams of expanding and building more in the future? Do you want the land to have its own access to docks or water access ways? All of this involves having an idea of how much land that you want.
Once you have spent time deciding on what you want your cabin to look and feel like, it is time to find the right builder to make your dreams come true. Use these tips to help make the process an exciting time in your life!
