Cabin Building Specs and Requirements

This is just to give you an idea of the kind of constraints we’re working with to come up with our cabin. The platform is 16’x26′ and we want to use that entire area for a one room structure. We may add structures to it at a later date, but for now, this is it, so the room has to serve many different functions. Spliting it up would just decrease the functionality of it. It must be a one storey structure and must cost between 5000 and 8000 dollars for all the material, mostly because we probably won’t be able to save more than that in time. Everything else can be considered, but within that price range, we are probably limited to traditional wood frame construction techniques.

Also, we don’t want to be cut off from the outside when we’re in the building. Eventually we’d like to insulate it, but for now, we want to be able to feel like we’re outside or at least see as much of the outside as possible when we’re inside. So, big windows that can open wide with big screens are a must.
