Details: Our longing for simplicity, clarity, and relaxation often leads us into nature. Hide and Seek showcases the most beautiful places for satisfying this longing. More and more people are yearning to live in harmony with nature. Yet they don’t want to give up their homes in the city or make radical changes to their lives Instead, they are creating their very own retreats in nature. The furniture, décor, and feel of these highly individual structures offer their owners an exceptional, yet convenient way of escaping from their urban routines. The right concept is more important than a lot of space. The architecture and interior design are rustic, bucolic, and simple ―dedicated to turning a small plot of land into a sanctuary for relaxation. Hide and Seek adds inspiring examples to the range of stunning getaways in nature presented in Rock the Shack, the bestselling predecessor to this book. Whether located in the forest, on the water, or in the mountains; whether light and minimalistic or dark and cozy, the featured retreats exemplify how to create locations that offer calm and balance in our hectic lives. The cabins, hideaways, and homes showcased here meld traditional architecture with modern living in fascinating and surprising ways. Although the individual solutions are very different from each other, all of them respect nature and focus on the essentials. Hide and Seek is a contemporary survey of contextual architecture and interior design that radiates inner strength It not only has the power to bring people in tune with their surroundings, but also with themselves.

Below we explain the difference between each license category, and a quick way to determine which one you might fall into.

In either case, one plan purchased equals one Den built, and you must buy multiple licenses to build additional Dens.

Residential License

  • You are a home owner or a property owner. Not a business.
  • You’re using your own social security number when filling out forms

You’re building your Den…

  • as an accessory dwelling to your existing house
  • as a primary structure on land you own as an individual
  • to host guests or family, or as a studio or workspace
  • to Airbnb it a few times to cover your basic costs
  • to Airbnb it full time to generate some extra cash for your family

Commercial License

  • You are a LLC, C-corp or other business entity
  • You are a general contractor
  • You are a real estate or hospitality developer
  • You own one or multiple hotels, event spaces or similar
  • You own one or more residential properties as a commercial entity
  • You’re using an EIN number when filling out forms

You’re building Den(s)

  • on behalf of a client as a certified Den builder
  • as part of a residential development
  • as a way to drive interest in your new hospitality project
  • as a way to add units to a pre-existing hotel, events space, or commercial property
  • to fuel growth in your small to medium scale Airbnb business

Why are Commercial Licenses more?

As a certified Den commercial license owner you're getting:

  • Designs that have been proven to attract attention
  • Designs that command premium nightly rates
  • Licensing costs that can be paid back quickly based on rental rates
  • Licensing costs that are far more affordable than compared to hiring a traditional firm

We've made it easy to build a cabin

Buy the plans

In order to begin building your Den cabin in nature, you need to start with a set of plans. You can't unlock the rest of the process without them.

Get them approved

Take your plans to your local building department to ensure your build is compliant with all local regulations, and get your plans approved.

Plan your build

Need to find a contractor, or want to wrap your head around how you'll frame the wall of the cabin? Our detailed plans precisely inform all these conversations.

What does it cost to build?

$153/sq foot with labor included

We encourage all our customers to plan for a construction cost of at least a cost of $153 per square foot (the national average). This cost assumes the use of labor, and that you’ll be working with a team of carpenters, plumbers, and electricians to build your cabin.
