Blending the benefits of a prefab, a log cabin and a mobile home, Zook Cabins, built by the Amish in Pennsylvania, offers several different types of fully assembled cabins in single or double-wide units that can be delivered directly to your property. Several different floorplans are also available, as well as customization and integration of your own design.
Zook Cabins are offered as fully assembled units for the simple reason in that it makes it easier on the owner. The Zook website says that most buyers of kit homes don’t have a lot of time or extra hands to construct a cabin from a kit or from scratch. Also, if your building site isn’t precisely level, the precut lumber doesn’t fit, or if you place one piece wrong you fight everything the rest of the way, and sometimes a piece will be cut wrong at the factory. Couple that with the fact that very few people have ever assembled a kit, and have yet to face the frustrations of doing it themselves or finding someone to do it for them.
One of the smallest pre-assembled cabins by Zook Cabin is the Settler Cabin. The single wide Settler comes in two widths: 12 foot and 14 foot. It offers the economy of a single wide building with all the comforts of small log home. The settler offers a 6 foot porch in the front of the building and is an economic building that is perfect for a small weekend retreat, office, hunting cabin, or mountain cabin. The floorplans can include up to 2 bedrooms, and one bathroom. The Settler has stained log siding, one wood entrance door or an insulated 6 panel steel door with stand house lock set, 24X 36 inch aluminum single hung vertical sliding windows with poly baton shutters, and 2X6 foot rafters. Several options are available including a finished Interior, hardwood flooring, electrical wiring, a bathroom package, a kitchenette, full insulation and a loft.
Another small cabin by Zook is the Adirondack. This model offers a 12 pitch roof which gives you room to have a lofted area above your first floor. That lofted area allows for additional storage, or a sleeping area. Loft space is over the porch, and is also available over portions or all of the first floor. The Adirondack offers stained log siding, one wood entrance door or an insulated 6 panel steel door with stand house lock set, a 6 foot porch with log railing, a 6 foot loft over porch, 30X48 inch insulated single hung vertical sliding windows with poly baton shutters, one 24″X36″ insulated vertical sliding windows with poly baton shutters in loft and 12 inch pitch scissor truss 2 foot OC.
The cost of each cabin depends on where you live and the size of the cabin. You can contact Zook Cabins directly by visiting the website or calling (610) 593-4556.
