Roth Mobile Montana Cabin

Roth Mobile Montana Cabin

This is the third in a series that I have done showcasing some of  Montana Mobile Cabins, the company that first inspired me to start writing about tiny homes and cabins. This cabin is called the Roth cabin and it is located somewhere in Montana. I was not given the details as to where.

The Roth cabin is an 18′ x 24′ cabin with a full loft, kitchen, bath, and great room. Made with full logs and rustic interior rough cut boards for cabinets, etc. It appears the owners went for modern stainless steel appliances which adds a modern touch to the cabin.

Love the sink… they got a deal on that dishwasher though. That green looks like something out of the 70’s.

Another great post THB

    I’m guessing but I think that green is a plastic protection over the stainless steel that has not been removed yet.

      Kent is correct…It is typical to have a “protective film” over stainless appliances.

      FYI: The only problem with “stainless appliances” is that it is typically a “brushed” steel and is NOT stainless. You can tell by sticking a magnet to it. If it sticks…it is NOT stainless!

        That’s probably true for most stainless steels used in home/kitchen applications, but stainless steel CAN be magnetic. It just depends on the allow of the steel. I believe SS that contains nickel will never be magnetic, but other stainless steels that do not contain nickel will or can be magnetic.

I like the size of this cabin..not so tiny and not so big either. Because of the complete bathroom and kitchen I could see myself being quite comfortable living there. What is the purpose for so much roof over hang?

    Generous roof overhangs are recommended for log structures to protect the logs from water infiltration.

Wow. I actually really like this size. I don’t know as though one needs a dishwasher, seem like a waste of storage space, but I love the kitchen and it’s counter space and sink. The one thing I might add to this house is a wood burning stove.

    Had the same thought! Also–I’d put a screened-in balcony under that front overhang.

    And maybe a divider in the loft–to accomodate guests/the kids having their own bedroom.

      a screened in balcony is a great idea.. i have one jst off my loft bedroom where i sleep in the summer when its really hot..makes a huge diffrence in getting a good nights sleep

Dishwashers are great mouseproof storage! As long as they can’t get up the drain. Large roof overhangs help protect your walls and keep you shady in summer, though such a high roof in front doesn’t help much for the front porch. Depends on your weather. I would definitely want a balcony in front that could help protect the entry as well as give you another place to enjoy the view. Definitely need a wood stove to cozy up to!

Beautiful! I really love these people’s work. The customer chose all electric appliances and heat, so even though the property looks remote, it must be on the grid. Also, it must be open enough for them to truck in the assembled cabin.

Very elegant!

A nice stone fireplace would be a nice addition too (energy-efficient if possible).

The wood interior and cabinetry is really warm and inviting and I agree the only thing missing is a wood stove.

Maybe balconies front and back, With doors front and back you wouldn’t have to take everything up those narrow stairs. A Russian/Siberian Firepalce/Wall rather than a wood stove (sense we are dreaming)and a Gambrel Roof. I just like gambrel roofs. I am 6’4″ and I need more head room. But I could definately see myself living here in one of these or there. Bet you could hunt right off the porch or one of those balconies.
