STONE MOUNTAIN CABINS
This business has about 6 each small 1 bedroom cabin plans and about 11 each 2 bedroom cabin plans plus some other larger 3 and 4 bedroom units. Nice looking, but too complicated for me to build. They are all pretty nice looking but a little more difficult for the first time builder or "Do-It-Yourselfer". It would be best for most people to enlist the services of a licensed contractor to build one of these cabins, in my opinion.
►I believe each person searches for solitude and comfort in many ways. I find comfort in the simple pleasures of life - a great book and the company of family. But most of all I find comfort in this great place of renewal, the cabin. If you would like to contact us about your order, have questions about how to place an order or would like to comment on our website, call us or email. Stone Mountain Cabin's plans have been designed with the consideration that minor modifications will take place. Small changes such as the addition, removal or relocation of a window or door, change in building materials, or finishing a loft can easily be made by you or your builder. Stone Mountain Cabins does provide design services that enable you to customize a purchased plan to your specific requirements. Please contact us via email so that we can provide you with pricing and details that match your request. To begin the process of building your home with a Stone Mountain Cabins plan, we suggest finding a contractor that matches your quality, style and budgetary requirements. You may check your local phone book to find contractors that serve your area. Other resources such as referrals from friends or relatives, local Home Builders Associations, Chambers of Commerce and Better Business Bureaus are also excellent sources for more information.◄ —Ken Pieper

BUILD THIS COZY CABIN According to the author: "Anyone with basic carpentry skills can construct this classic one-room cabin for under $4,000" at 1986 prices. For an exploded view of the basic framework click here.
►In this article, I'll show you how to build a 14-by-20-foot cabin featuring a sleeping loft over the porch for about $4,000. Who can resist it? My own cabin adventure began in 1986, when I built one as an inexpensive place to stay while constructing my house — that's when I began learning what makes cabin design and construction successful. (I've always had a debt-free approach to developing my property.) The four years I lived in this cabin were a good time in my life — perhaps one of the best. I fondly recall the simplicity of waking each morning with the sole purpose of building my own house, working well into the evening. What follows is a cabin plan with the hands-on know-how I wish I had 20 years ago. It won't replace the need for basic carpentry skills, but it will alert you to the main challenges of framing a cabin and how to clear the most important hurdles. And even if you never build a cabin of your own, these basic instructions will be useful anytime you need to build a garage, shed or other outbuilding.◄
Most of the plans presented here are for over 1000 SF size homes, but he does have a smaller plan in the works called the "Studio Case House" at 794 SF. Picture on the right is of plan #0367 "The Porch House" at 1066 SF.
"The Porch House leads a double life. During the winter it is a cozy two bedroom cabin. During the summer it is a weekend retreat able to accommodate many friends and guests. The entire ground floor of the cabin is designed as one big screened in porch, with sleeping areas and a summer kitchen which allows you to move your life outside for the summer months, hence the name Porch House. So despite the size of the house, during the summer months the number of people that can be accommodated can be quite large. These summer living spaces are made to drink in the scenery and make life at this retreat as different as possible from your daily life back home. Think of it as a machine for unwinding! Read more about it below the images."

►We're pleased to offer this collection of selected plans.

Our larger houses (small by many standards) may fit the needs for a young family or retired couple, and may be complemented by one of our garages, live-aboves or toolsheds. Developers can take advantage of plans that "dovetail" to preserve privacy in a neighborhood setting. A commons building will offer the setting for shared use, or could be the perfect poolhouse. Whatever your needs, we hope you'll find a solution here. And if not, tell us what you're looking for — we're always interested in creating good homes that fit. real needs.◄

OUR SMALL CABIN
For those of you wishing to try your hand at building your own small cabin this website has some good information for you. Presented as "A complete 'Do-It-Yourself' guide on how to plan, build and enjoy your small cabin — in simple terms!"
►This web site is a collection of personal experience and useful resources I have found when building my own small cabin in the wilderness. It will be useful for people who want to do the same - to build a small cabin on their own - so they will have a quiet retreat or hideaway spot to enjoy their weekend or vacation. We love the outdoors. We had many camping and nature exploration trips, trail hiking, and just short visits to the nature conservation areas and wilderness parks. Building a small cabin in the wilderness was really a natural extension of our outdoor pursuits. When I started to build my small cabin I searched for various bits of information, but could not find a one concise, clear and complete guide on how to build a small cabin or a small cottage using my own skills and resources. This web site aims to be such guide. I do not promote any cabin building kit, material supplier, construction business or service provider, but I will mention particular things I used. I built my small cabin from scratch, using materials easily available from local building material suppliers, and without any special skills or training. But I did my research homework!◄

This is a fairly recent offer for a beautiful small cabin plan. To view the C3 cabin go to "main" then click on bottom link for "portfolio" then click on the bottom picture which says "plans". They have pictures and a link where you can go to purchase the plans for this little cabin. This company is located in Seattle, Washington. On this date the plans were $850.00 5-08-09.
►The C3 cabin was born out of a desire to reduce and to simplify. Whereas the footprint may be small, this cabin lives large. With only 352 square feet on the main floor and 128 square feet in the loft, it encompasses all the domestic requirements of structures many times larger. The design of this cabin is premised on three goals. First, to provide the required spaces for an extended stay cabin within a minimal footprint. Second, provide a quality of space and abundant natural sunlight. And third, to allow for simplicity of construction and maintenance. The ground floor contains the main living space, kitchen and bath, with doors opening onto three sides the flexibility to connect to multiple outdoor spaces is promoted. The sleeping loft caps both the kitchen and bathroom while remaining open to the living space below. With multiple operable windows both on the ground floor and in the loft, natural cross ventilation is assured. The construction documents consist of eight 24in x 36in sheets.◄

"There is one very good lesson I did get out of architecture school. Was it worth five years of college? Probably. Here's the lesson: 'Always work from the general to the specific'. That's it! Start with the broadest questions you can ask and solve those issues first before going on to the next level of detail. For example, fully understand your site — its soil, views and weather patterns before you layout the rooms and long before you decide what siding to use. Work your way down from the most general to the most specific. It's good advice that will keep you from making all kinds of mistakes and omissions.◄
DOME PLANS Reviewed in Mother Earth News, Canadian Workshop, & other Professional Builder magazines.
►Building a geodesic dome has never been easier. Whether you're a professional home builder, a do-it-yourself type or you already own a dome home but would like a matching outbuilding or shop, Professional Dome Plans gives you the tools you'll need to successfully build a geodesic dome.
The detailed shop drawings and simple formulas explain it all ▬ every length, every angle, every board. Building a geodesic dome as a do-it-yourself project can be a real challenge. It's difficult to know where to begin even for those with considerable building experience. If you dig deep enough, you can find plenty of information describing the geometry of domes, although most of it is rather technical and theoretical and often lacks the kind of practical hands on advice needed to turn theory into a finished product. This plan book is designed to fill that void by focusing almost entirely on simple, detailed shop drawings that show how geodesic domes are built with virtually no need for higher math. In fact, the only math you'll see in these plans are the 4 basic functions used in a list of formulas for calculating the length of various parts. The underlying geometry describes carbon 60, the third stable form of pure carbon after graphite and diamond called buckminsterfullerene or buckyballs. Its' shape is a 3 frequency (3v) icosahedron which is an industry-standard for dome homes. If that sounds complicated, and I'm pretty sure it does, I guarantee you it doesn’t matter. Understanding the complex geodesic math involved in the design of domes is completely unnecessary when it comes to the actual process of building one. All you'll need are basic woodworking skills and a little patience. With that, you should have little trouble building your own dome.◄
