    Default SBS Cabin Kits

    Does anyone have any comments (good or bad) on Spenard Builder's cabin kits?

    I picked up the literature on them from the Spenard rural sales dept. I was not sold. Minimal everything.

    There are a few out at Lake Louise and they just don't seem attractive. I believe that a cabin/home should make you want to go in and have a cup of coffee. The kits are too industrial/box store/prefab looking for me.

    Check PM.

    On a positive note, they are very economical and easy to construct. I helped a friend erect the frame a few years back. The 3 of us, had it framed in and dry in less than a week. I also stayed in one over in Glenallen. It was very cozy and nice. You just have to remember it is a cabin and not a house.

    I bought mine in May. Not exactly the log cabin I've always dreamed of, but it was affordable. I initially wasn't interested in the property because I didn't like the gambrel roof, but once I actually went and looked at it and the lot it was on, I was sold.

    There's not much insulation. On the positive side, it's got a nice layout and very comfortable (I think it's around 576 sq. ft.).

    Here's what the SBS garage/shop looks like....was told the floor is only strong enough for snowmachines and fourwheelers the way this one was built. Using it to store firewood right now.
