Country Cabin Getaways specializes in reaching passionate people with limited budgets
When we think of cabins, we tend to think about the quintessential cabin in the woods, detached from modern-day life and immersed in nature. These cabins provide people with a refuge from the hectic buzz of modern day life, and a chance to reconnect with themselves, nature and their loved ones. These days, however, it's easy for a secluded cabin to turn into a modern-style home away from home, connected to wifi with television and all of the other amenities of a city home. This can be beneficial, but it can also take away from the relaxation that disconnection from the modern world can bring us. The luxuriating of wood cabins out in nature also makes this type of vacation housing very expensive, almost like having a complete second home just like the one that's in the city. Pat and Céline Shank of Evergreen Concepts in Perth, Ontario Canada saw this in their many years of building wood cabins, and they wanted to give people an affordable option. They created wood cabin kits for sale for those with limited budgets who just wanted a simple cabin in the woods to use as a means to connect with nature.
Most of these affordable small wood cabins were also to be off the grid as well. This makes them even more peaceful as well as more environmentally sustainable too. Evergreen Concepts implements alternative and renewable energy systems along with their environmentally sustainable designs to create some comfortable and eco-friendly cabins. The great thing is, there are so many options when it comes to creating affordable housing with an environmentally conscious approach. This means leaving the things that aren't necessary behind and focusing on the essentials. One of the first things to focus on would be the sanitation in a cabin. This could be a bathroom with a composting toilet, or an outhouse for a more affordable option. Some cabins just have basic plumbing for running water, with propane water heaters, while some cabins just run cold water that can be heated on the stove. Depending on your needs, you can design your wood cabin to be as off-grid or equipped as needed. This may also be able to be done with housing depending on where you live, but most full-time residences require septic, water and electricity to be installed so that they are up to code.
