DIY – Building a Timber Cabin

A quick 2 minute summary of a Cabin Being Built

Cabin Kits from Cabin Life are a very affordable and simple way to create extra space at your place. This simple construction method has been around in Europe and Canada for many, many years and Cabin Life has made it simple for Australians to enjoy it also.
In this 2 minute video you can see how simple it can be to construct one of our cabins called the Woodstock.
This cabin used steel posts instead of our standard 125mm round treated pine posts. There is no difference in the methods used, it was just the preference in this build for steel posts.

Hi Keith,

just want to say the cabin is finished. I must say the cabin is exactly what I wanted and it looks beautiful.Arnold went above and beyond what was expected and I’m grateful for all his hard work, it did take longer than I thought but the finished product I can’t fault it, job well done. I’m very happy of the end results!!

Finally finished the garden. I thought you might like to see some shots of the cabin in location. I love it. I’m starting to live in it more and more. Thanks again Keith for an excellent product and service.

I am totally thrilled with our Cabin that Dave and Stu built for us last year. It's come up beautifully.
I've had heaps of people asking me about the construction and product and have recommended Cabinlife to them and told them how impressed we were with the product and service you provided, that you did everything you said you would do and that it was the most seamless, user friendly customer experience I have ever had.

Done! The guys did a wonderful job and I'm really happy how everything has turned out. Daz and Dave are top blokes and I had a blast helping them build the cabin.

I managed to get a coat of paint on it yesterday in case we get rain next week. It looks great!!

Our Deluxe cabin has survived the cyclone we had here a few weeks back, with no damage at all to the cabin (quite a few houses lost parts of their roof) Thanks again.
