Air conditioning

A mini-split reverse cycle AC is recommended for our Cabins. We don’t provide the AC.

Due to installation, service and warranty it’s best to purchase this locally.




Heat

For moderate climates, the reverse cycle heat pump above does a very good job.

Other heat methods include baseboard heat, radiant floor heat (for concrete floors) or even a woodstove.




Water Heater

We suggest an “on-demand” tankless heater. This is in the builders scope of work.




Bathrooms

Our baths include a vanity by IKEA, a mirrored medicine cabinet, a towel bar, a TP holder, a one-piece molded shower unit and a commode.




Roof

The Maxwell has curved wood beams supporting a 2 x 6 tongue and groove plank deck. The final roofing is builder-supplied.




Insulation

Our insulation will meet your local codes. Our pricing is based on wall insulation value of R-14 and roof R-value of R-20.

A climate package upgrade is available.




Hardware

Our Cabin packages contain most everything needed to build your Cabin.

We provide the nuts, bolts, and special screws.

We also provide the glues, sealant tapes and adhesives.




Plumbing

Our bathrooms and kitchen packages include all the fixtures needed.

We have found that it’s best to have the plumbing installed by local plumber.




Electric

The electric is best installed by local licensed electrician.
