Cabana Cabin Kitset (12m2)

The pressure treated Cabana kitset 3x4m cabin, is another of our most popular models of cabin. With 12m2 of floorspace, the Cabana cabin is an extra 3 square meters (about 33%) bigger than our most popular Star cabin, yet is cheaper per square meter of floorspace, giving you more bang for your buck. The 9m2 Star cabin comfortablly fits a queen-sized bed, but upgrade to this 12m2 Cabana to easily fit a desk and/or couch in there as well.

With the timeless SheShed classic style, and our ongoing customer service, the Cabana kitset log cabin is a great option to both add extra space and increase the value of your property!
