Any basic floorplans to look at? I didn’t see any on the website.

    It’s an open rectangle with a loft. There really isn’t much of a floorplan to show.

It looks like the floor is particle board. What are the gable ends make out of? Are they insulated?

Montana Mobile Cabins - February 15, 2012 Reply

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.

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?
