What to Consider Before Purchasing Inexpensive Log Cabin Kits
As appealing as it is to buy a log cabin kit, build it, and move in, there are a few considerations you need to make before doing so.
Aside from the cabin kit and assembly, you should consider the following costs and labor needs:
- Plumbing (And the need for a possible septic tank)
- Heating system
- Shipping costs of the log cabin kit
Make sure to budget for everything you’ll need, plus a little extra to be on the safe side.
