Small cottage kits are sold by the Amish Cabin Company and Summerwood Products, as of 2016. Cottage kits provide a more cost-effective way to build a cabin than the traditional way.
Buyers can choose a style and size, as well as any additional features, and the company can prepare the kit and ship it directly to the new construction site. Some cottage kits feature a hybrid wall construction and are put together with screws rather than nails to provide durability and strength. Kits come with the basic materials, but buyers can purchase optional add-ons such as cabinets or a tankless water heater.
