Ranch Cabin Kitset (12m2)

The Ranch Cabin treated kitset has 12m2 of floorspace, the same size as our Cabana cabin, but with a more modern look and thicker wall boards, the Ranch cabin can provide slightly better insulation properties than our smaller cabins and it can look good doing it.

Please note, there is no deck included with any of our kitsets, (but you can discuss with your builder what options you have to add one to your own Ranch cabin).
