“It’s exciting to work for a company that’s builds a quality, affordable cabin, that fit perfectly into the smaller housing downsizing trend. Our customers are looking to simplify and enjoy life rather than maintaining and being tied down to a larger property. They appreciate the extremely high quality and value of our cabins. This, coupled with the ability to customize the cabin specifically for their needs, land, and lifestyle, is just an added bonus.
