"Inspired by their own cabin-building experience in the Catskills, the couple behind Den sought to create an easy and cost-effective way for anyone to create the cozy retreat of their dreams."
“What makes the Den Cabin Kit stand out is the well-thought-out design that makes the DIY aspect as easy as possible.”
“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.”
“This past weekend we had the pleasure of visiting the Den Catskills Cabin Compound for a look at a fully built prototype. The verdict? I want one.”

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.
“The amount of interior space feels just right for my purposes (mostly writing at a desk), and every day when I go to work, it feels like I am on a retreat.”
“I bought a Den plan, took it to my building dept. and was able to start my build 3 days later!”
“Everything is designed really well. It is very non-pro use 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.”
“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.”

Finding the perfect property for your project lays the foundation for a lifetime of happiness. The land which you choose to steward not only defines the experience of where your home sits, but also your life.
Should you purchase plans and stick to traditional construction or a go with a prefab cabin kit? We're familiar with scenarios in which either plans or prefab would be the way to go.
Between family events, holidays, and vacation time, your family cabin probably sits unused for a good chunk of the year. You can turn those vacant nights and weekends into an income stream to offset mortgage, maintenance, and utility costs.
