    Default How to save a buck.

    Please post ideas on how to save a dollar while building your cabin.

    SBS sells the cardboard baffles for your roof (to prevent your insulation from closing the air gap) in unit qty of 1. Everyone else wants units of 50+.

    Price all wood stove pieces at different places. Prices vary greatly especially on Metalbestos and the gap sealant ($11.00 VS $27.00.

    Slightly dented items at box stores can be discounted greatly, ask an attendant, if the price is too high ask for a manager.

    Default Scrounge!!

    Go around to where people are remodeling and ask if they want to get rid of anything (Craigslist is also great for this). I got the windows, doors, roofing, tub, sinks, woodstove, stack washer/dryer, and furniture by doing this. My actual costs have been less than $10/foot so far, and the cabin is livable.
