One of the best things about recent travel is having so many places to choose to stay. It used to be all hotels, condos, or big places. Now, you can rent people’s homes, cabins, and more with different websites and apps. What is even crazier is that you can be the person to rent out your own space! 

Side hustles are very common these days because people want to continue to make more money in their spare time. One of the things that modern prefab cabins allow you to do is make more money! You can not only have a permanent vacation spot for yourselves, but you can also feature your cabin on different apps like VRBO and Airbnb for people to stay in. We can help you figure out some unique cabin interior ideas if you want to do that!

Take a look at the different cabin options we offer in our catalog. Each cabin can be fully customized and finished to fit the aesthetic you want!

  • Roof Pitch – You can adjust your roof pitch for a variety of reasons. Roof pitch creates different amounts of space on the tops of the cabin. This allows for the addition of roof accessories, vents, and custom-sized windows.

Porch Styles

There are 3 main styles of porches when choosing your modern prefab cabin in KY. The question you should ask yourself first is: do you want to spend time on your porch? Certain porches allow for more space to recline and relax in your new environment.

  • Corner Porch – A corner porch is a simple porch that allows for standard windows and doors. Some corner porches feature a railing and a small space for a chair. They add a charming and welcoming look to your building.

  • Front Porch – The front porch is the traditional style of porch for modern prefab cabins. This has a more open feel with multiple windows and the option for a double door. If you want a space to relax, choose this style of porch!

  • Deluxe Porch – This style of porch is comparable to a wrap-around porch on a house. This allows for the most room and “separate” areas on your porch. These are great choices for a porch dining area.

4 Styles Of Modern Prefab Cabins In KY

Modern Prefab Cabins: Ranch

Ranch cabins have a way of taking a space that looks small on the outside and transforming it to be huge on the inside. If you are thinking about buying a cabin, here is what sets the Rach Cabin apart from all of the rest.

  • Higher Walls – The rach cabin is outfitted with walls that are seven feet or higher. This makes the interior space feel open and spacious.
  • Roof Overhang – Whatever the pitch of your cabin roof, there will still be 6-8 inches of overhang, allowing for protection against winds and precipitation.

Modern Prefab Cabins: Double Wide

Double-wide cabins are just what you would expect. Double the width of normal cabins! If you want a cabin for your family, but you have a bigger family, this is a great cabin for you. Allow us to help you design the double-wide cabin of your dreams that your whole family can enjoy!

  • Extra Interior Space – With double the space of a traditional, modern prefab cabin, these structures are perfect for getaways with friends or family.
  • Roof Overhang – With the increased size of this cabin, an 8’’ roof overhang allows for better protection against high winds and harsh climates.

Double-high cabins give you a second story for your cabin. With the same amount of space on the ground floor as a traditional cabin, it doubles in size when the new floor is introduced! Create separate areas for parents and children with a unique double-high cabin!

  • 2nd Floor – This is the only cabin on our list to feature a 2nd floor. This allows for much more storage than you will get from a loft.
  • Maximize Area – With 2 stories, you have the ability to maximize your property outside with the height of the building beating the width.

Modern Prefab Cabins: High Barn

High barn cabins give the character of an old-fashioned barn mixed with the newness of a modern prefab cabin. These types of cabins have a deep length which allows for multiple interior finishing options. Often found with loft spaces for extra storage or sleeping space, high barn cabins are ideal for small families looking for a break from everyday life!

  • Deep Lofts – Forget having to transport multiple things every time you want to go to the cabin. Store seasonal and extra items in your loft space. You can also optimize your space by putting your bed in the loft area.
  • Space – With the open interior and the dynamic length, you will have the most space with a normal square foot area for your cabin
