Choosing a Site for Your Cabin or Cottage
Give this stage some serious thought. What part of the day is important to you, watching the sun come up from your deck or watching the sun set? The compass positioning of your structure can make all the difference. How much privacy would you like and to what parts of your cabin? What about your guests? Will you need parking? Thinking along these lines will help select the optimal location for your cabin. For more tips and ideas, our Cabin Foundations can take a load of your mind.
Building Permits - Be Sure!
Unless it's a small Bunkie you're building - cabins are
typically larger than 110sq ft, so you're likely going to need a building
permit. Don't skip this step as Inspectors can be very unforgiving. And zoning
bylaws vary from jurisdiction, to municipality, to state. This library of
regional Government listings may contain the contact details of your
office. Learn other important details about zoning and permits.
