Forest Classics Portable Cabins

As many of you know I am a big fan of the old fashioned log construction. My dream for years was to have a log cabin in the woods. I just discovered a company in Colorado who just might make it possible and I wanted to share it with those who have a similar dream.

Forest Classics Log Homess portable cabins are the perfect addition to any property. Easily place these cabins anywhere you want-usually with no building permit required. Our portable cabins are real, hand-crafted log homes mounted on a permanent trailer frame. Starting at just $12,000 and up.

Here at Forest Classics Ltd., we understand building small and portable. We originally built our little cabin as a “show cabin” to take to Expo’s and Home/Living shows to demonstrate and promote our custom homes and craftsmanship. As it turns out this little portable cabin turned into quite a “hit.”

Since Forest Classics Ltd is a completely custom builder, we do not have any other “models” or plans.  However we do have several clients that we are helping to design their own little cabins. If you have an idea that you drew on a napkin, we can take it from there.

This particular cabin is an 8 ½ x 20 170 square foot with a 8 ½ x 4 ft covered deck, Dovetail Style Full Log, hand hewn, with an Adze finish. The ceiling is Aspen T&G, the door & windows are Sierra Pacific and the flooring is a beautiful Hickory. Since this one was built for show it does not have any plumbing or heating, however it is wired for electricity. This size of a cabin is perfect for any size lot.

The weight of the cabin is approximately 10,000 pounds.  Our custom cabins can be made lighter if needed.

As far as the chinking is concerned we use and are a provider of Sashco Products. This is a high quality acrylic rubber variant that is made to look like cement. This life time product is very flexible and durable. The Cabin is held together by structural notches.

    There is one size there but I would assume they have more sizes to suite the requirements of the consumer. They look really great, you could either have one as a summer house in your garden or possibly buy a plot on a log cabin park and rent them out.

    Hi Tim – Brandon sent me the weight and I have inserted it above. Here is what he said: The weight of the cabin is approximately 10,000 pounds. Our custom cabins can be made lighter if needed.
