Keeping costs down isn’t easy to do in the current home building industry, but Arched Cabins has an option worth looking into. A basic shell kit from them can cost as low as $1,000. A 12’x24′ Arched Cabin costs about $5,000 for the shell.
In a standard kit you’ll find the floor plates, ribs, a ridge beam, R13 insulation, Super Span roof panelling, trim and fastenings. The foundation is not included and normally requires adherence to local building codes.
The widths of Arched Cabins ranges from 14-feet to 24-feet. Respectively the height ranges from 12-feet tall to 32-feet tall. So you can keep your Arched Cabin small or you can actually build a fairly large home for more money.
Once the shell is complete you finish off the interior as you see fit. You can even build a second floor loft to serve as a bedroom too. To learn more about this low-cost alternative to exterior home shells visit the Arched Cabins website.
