Cabin Kit FAQ
Is the building suitable for my area?
We want to be sure your purchase fits your needs, but please be aware that it is your responsibility to determine whether or not you will need a building permit, and to determine what the requirements are to meet local building codes or other rules that apply in your locality. You can contact your local building code authorities for such information. Laws, ordinances, regulations, restrictions, covenants, and other codes or rules that apply to sheds, storage buildings or other outdoor structures in which you may be interested vary from State to State and from locality to locality and these codes or rules are also subject to change. Please confirm that the merchandise will meet the local building codes and regulation PRIOR TO PURCHASE

Yes, you can tear down your shed / cabin and build it again, but we do not recommend to do it. If you plan to move and do it, it helps to avoid nails and using screws instead. Even if you carefully take the structure apart, it is reasonable to expect that you will need to replace the floor boards anyway. We have floor replacement kits availale.

It is very important to make sure that underneath the cabin is well ventilated.
