Lake Cabin Kitset (29m2)

The Lake Cabin Kitset comes in at 29 square meters, nearly 10 square meters bigger than it’s smaller counterpart, the Brook River. The Lake Kitset Cabin is also the only She Shed to feature a separate internal room with a solid door that can be installed on any of the internal walls, a fantastic feature for providing extra storage and space division options.

Please note that none of our She Shed kitsets come with decking included. If you like what you see other people have done with their Lake cabin, you’ll need to discuss your available options with your builder or a deck installer.

Alternative Options to the Lake Cabin:

Is the Lake Cabin close, but not quite right? Here's what you could look at instead, click on an option below to learn more:

Downsize to the Tasman

The Tasman cabin is 9 square meters smaller than the Lake Cabin, but with less windows and a simpler shape, the Tasman Cabin could be better suited for a beautiful storage shed. Click here to read more about the Tasman Cabin.

Downsize to the Brook River

At 19.4 square meters, the Brook River cabin keeps the same doors, windows, and gabled entryway as the Lake Cabin, but is scaled down into a more compact package, ideal for backyards that can't fit a Lake cabin. Click here to read more about the Brook River Cabin.
