The 3 bedroom modular prefab cabin is 1,811 square feet, manufactured by Method Homes, consists of several modules such as multiple bedroom configurations, living/kitchen, bridge and bunk house modules. The modules can be configured to meet client needs or site restraints. The modern prefab cabin features custom home architectural detailing and high quality materials.

Designed by Balance Associates Architects, the Cabin Series can sit on a low foundation with a crawl space below or include a site-built basement with garage. Model 1 is fully customizable, featuring several bridge options for extra sleeping or living space. Clients can choose options and features from any of the pricing scenarios to arrive at a custom home package and price point.

This 1,811-square foot retreat-in-the-woods is actually a fully outfitted model home that doubles as a rental cabin for potential buyers looking to experience a couple of nights in the same type of prefab home that they're considering buying. It’s also available to rent as a crash pad for outdoor enthusiasts “playing” in the area.

With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and ample gear-stashing space, the Method Cabin is comprised of five factory-built-by-master-craftsmen modules including a bridge that connects the living and sleeping areas. Built to LEED Gold standards, green features of the cabin include low-flow fixtures, hydronic radiant heat, “enhanced” insulation, reclaimed cedar siding, low/zero-VOC paints and finishes, and a slag concrete foundation that includes recycled content. The base model of Method Cabin Model 1 starts at $271,650.

For those of you that might actually want to spend a night or two in this secluded 3 bedroom modular prefab cabin, you’ll be glad to know that there’s a hot tub, ping pong table, BBQ grill, and 400 thread count organic cotton sheets. Weekly and monthly rates are available.

About Method Homes

Sustainable design is a core value for Method. We believe everyone deserves to live, work, and learn in healthy, quality buildings. Sustainable homes are more comfortable, efficient, better places to live. All of our modular homes and commercial structures are built using sustainable materials, systems, and practices.

Method’s homes and commercial structures can be built to obtain LEED, ENERGY STAR, Living Building Challenge, Passive House, and other environmental certification standards. Building off-site inside our custom facility eliminates exposure to the elements and minimizes construction waste to less than 10 percent. Reduced time and activity spent on the site lightens the environmental impact of the building process. Elegant, energy–efficient, and environmentally responsible, Method’s homes are available for delivery throughout most of the United States and Canada.

Responsible Design and Construction

Method works with design partners who share our values, which means designing and constructing homes and commercial structures that are using innovative and responsible practices. We achieve our goals through focusing on a tight building envelope, integrating energy-efficient systems and products whenever possible, and reducing waste through building in a centralized factory location where materials can be reused and recycled.

Quality Materials

Method uses the best quality, local products whenever possible to ensure our buildings are healthy, comfortable, and resilient. We give clients the flexibility to select the performance and energy upgrades that are the best fit for their project. Every Method home comes standard with the following:

• Low or no VOC paints and adhesives, which means less chemical off gassing
• Above-code insulation
• No UA formaldehyde in any building materials
• Quiet and efficient ENERGY STAR rated vent fans
• FSC Certified hardwood floors
• Locally harvested lumber within 500 miles
• Dual flush toilets
• Low-flow fixtures
• Pre-wiring for solar

Leading Environmental Certifications

Method is committed to quality and innovation in everything we build. We are experienced in building to meet leading environmental certification standards and work closely with our team of green building consultants to ensure successful execution and enrollment in various certification programs, including LEED, Passive House, ENERGY STAR, and Living Building Challenge.

Added benefits of building to the leading environmental certification standards are maximized water and energy efficiencies, resulting in significant cost savings on energy, light, and water bills. In addition, certain certifications may qualify you for federal tax credits and/or tax benefits based on your location.
