    • Have land in Rapid City, South Dakota. Cost to move it there? Is there a finished floor?
      Kitchenette or bath?
      Appreciate info regarding this cabin. Thank you.
      We are currently living in Wichita, Kansas

  1. The floor is a sub-floor, osb board, ready for you to finish the floor however you would like. The gable ends are insulated, the tin that is the siding on the gable ends is reclaimed from an old barn. The roof is also insulated.

  2. Do you have any styles that do not have master bedroom in a loft? Cabin would be for an older person that cannot climb ladder. Could you send me a few examples and layout with pricing.

    Do you do financing also?
