Cabin Fever – ZIP Cabin

The folks at Cabin Fever have a new design that is just 10′ by 12′ and goes up quickly. It’s called the Zip Cabin and can be configured in a number of different ways. I like this dogtrot-like variation with twin cabins facing each other.

The single 10′ by 12′ unit pictured here starts at about $15,500; the two facing units with the connecting deck starts at $27,700. For current pricing and details visit the Cabin Fever website.

    LOL … you can buy a lot of trailer home for $15k and that additional deck shouldn’t cost you more than $2k.

    Presumably the stigma associated with living in a trailer is too much for the upwardly mobile eco-hipster to bear.

    Hello Icewalker,

    The ZipCabin is not intended to compete in the same space as trailer homes. We have nothing at all against trailers but that’s not what we make – yet – watch this space!

    The Zip is a small, mostly permit-exempt, very strong accessory building that works great as a backyard office, guest room, yoga pavilion, art studio, etc, but also works as an affordable hard-tent getaway place, especially if off-grid is your thing (it’s ours!).

    It is priced well compared to similar structures in its class. The optional 6’x12′ covered deck actually costs a little over $2000 and most of that cost is not in the decking itself but in the extended 17’ SIP roof panels and in the additional foundation which, in fact, is a seamless continuation of the main structure’s foundation, rather than just a separate add-on. A pretty cool feature when you think about it.
