New Video Featuring Dave Bates and The Portable Cedar Cabin Shell.
I am very excited to share our first video that is the first of a series of videos of the cabins built by Dave Bates. The videos were produced by Brandon White of HossProductions It was a very easy, pleasant experience working with him. He helped me on the fly, listened carefully and did exactly what I asked for. Brandon is in the Spokane area and I highly recommend him.
Unfinished Shell Starting At 8.6 X 24 $ 24,000
Dave wants to offer this service to customers who want to finish the interior of the cabin them-self. This is also perfect for someone who is on a budget and needs to finish it as their finances allow or wants to use local materials. The cabin is on a custom trailer on wheels and the outside is finished.
You will not be limited to the floor plan, design or roof style. Dave is very flexible in his designs.
The Unfinished Shell Includes
Custom Built Steel Trailer
Metal Roof ( Your Choice Of Color )
8” Cedar lap siding or ( Siding Options)
7/16 OSB sheet vapor wrap
2 X 6 walls 16” 0/C
2 x 6 floor joist 16” O/C

Shower is included
A shower needs to be included in the shell if you plan on having a shower because it will be impossible to get in after it is built.
Rough Plumbing And Rough Electrical Can Be Added
Rough plumbing and rough electrical is an option that can be added to your cabin. Specify in your quote for any additions you would like.
The cabins that Dave builds are from 144 to 400 square feet. The cabins can be no larger than 400 square feet because they are certified park models.
Width : 8.6, 10, 11, 12 or 14′
Length: 18 to 40 ‘

If you are going to do a lot of the interior work yourself, it is important to know that insurance companies want electric heat as the primary heat and propane and a wood stove as a secondary heat. They also prefer to have them professionally installed.
