Stephen ProctorModern Alpine Cabin
It’s a dream. Going the route of a traditional build using plans from DEN has proven to be the simplest & most affordable approach, as well as the easiest to get permitted.
Major ParkhurstA-Frame House
I looked at several different A-Frame companies and spent a lot of time trying to decide which one to go with. DEN had the best style and the best all-in package, for sure. I’d describe the brand as modern, stylish, natural, and, in terms of the final product, ahead of its time.
Emilio MadridModern Alpine Cabin
Regardless of whether you're building a DEN as designed or just using their resources as a jumping off point for a custom build, Mike and his team are incredibly responsive and collaborative.

I’m glad I chose DEN. The plans are beautiful and DIY friendly. I just wish I could build them all!
Nicolas PottsA-Frame House
DEN’s detailed plans took the guesswork out of building my perfect cabin in the woods.
Ian PorterA-Frame House
I would say using the DEN plans was much faster and cheaper than going through an architect for a custom set of plans.

We manage the entire project for you, so you don’t have to worry about finding a builder, looking up other vendors, learning all the steps in the process, following up on various tasks, or managing communication, payment, and timelines. The DEN team handles all of that, making homebuilding far more convenient, transparent, and stress-free — for everyone involved.
We vet the best builders in the area, optimizing for build quality, cost, and professionalism. We then get full transparency on all invoicing and costs, to make sure you aren’t overcharged or faced with confusing change orders. Finally, we’re available if the project faces confusing decisions around timelines, invoicing dates, or conflicts. We are here to protect your project from start to finish.
We thank you for your early support of our digital plans! BuiltBy DEN has a separate set of exclusive plans that we strongly encourage our customers to build with because they are optimized for premium design and efficiency, but we can discuss your final plan preferences 1:1. Either way, we’ll discount the total purchase price of the digital plans from your BuiltBy DEN project cost.
Full end-to-end project management, from finding land to keys in hand of a turnkey, newly built home.
