If you're gonna sweat, it might as well be in style

The Den Sauna is a beautiful modern expression of the outdoor sauna, elevating the idea of the traditional "sweat box" by combining timeless form and modern design elements. This sauna plan features a giant picture window to give you and your guests a stunning and memorable view of the outdoors while sitting inside. The interior accommodates up to 4 seated adults or 2 laying down. We included a changing area inside the design that serves a dual purpose. We all like to cool down after a big sweat and you can relax on a bench here before your next session and if it's windy or really cold that day, just close the exterior sliding door for extra protection. Configurable in both on or off grid settings, you may use either a wood fired or electric stove to provide the heat and steam.

How much does it cost to build a cabin?

Everything is designed really well. The lofted ceilings. The oversized doors. All the little details. It is very non-pro user friendly. Hiring an architect can be a nightmare. People tell me they are paying $12-15k for designs. DEN saved me a lot of money.

The final result is nothing less than stunning. The design is sleek, nestled into the back hillside in a way that is both formidable but also understated.

When Den came out with the Barnhouse Plus, it was exactly the design we needed, and it was also unique enough to diversify our build from the other short-term rentals in the area.

Going the route of a tradition build using plans from Den has proven to be the simplest & most affordable approach, as well as the easiest to get permitted.

You asked.
We answered.

How much does it cost to build a Den cabin?

We provide budgeting guidance throughout our website on how much it’ll cost to build a DEN, and while these estimates are data driven and some of the most accurate in the industry, they are not price guarantees. The best way to find out the price for your DEN, with your builder, in your location, given current market conditions for materials, is to buy a set of plans and use these to start costing the project with your builder or local lumber yard.

Do you offer customizations on DEN building plans?

If you’re wondering if you can change the foundation, floorplan, windows and door or the roof pitch? The answer is yes! We're happy to work with you on minor and moderate changes, but don’t ask us to turn a tiny house into a 4 bedroom McMansion. We can only customize a DEN design, not recreate another design that’s not ours, or try to connect a DEN to an existing structure. Click here to take a look at our customization categories and pricing.

Do DEN building plans come with a list of materials needed?

Yes, DEN provides a Materials and Labor Worksheet with our Complete Package. 

Also known as a "Quantity Take-off" , the worksheet is an editable spreadsheet that can be used to total your project budget and assist you in the procurement phase of the project.  You will use this spreadsheet together with your drawings to get a complete quote from your lumber yard.

The worksheet includes time estimates for major labor tasks so all you need to do is input local labor rates and material pricing and your worksheet will automatically create a total budget. 

What type of license do the Den building plans grant me?

Want to know which licensing category you fall into? Check out this quick guide.

Den building plans provide a non-transferable license to the purchaser to build one, single cabin depicted in the plans in a residential context. What this means is that one plan purchase allows you to build one cabin of this type. If you’d like to build two of this same cabin, you will need to purchase two licenses. This license supports residential implementations for use with short term rentals, however, this standard license does not extend to commercial entities like hotels or real estate developers.

For licensing fees related to real estate developments and hospitality implementations please contact  developer@denoutdoors.com
