I have been planning on building my own cabin for quite a while now. Since I was in my mid-twenties, I’ve been saving money and looking for the perfect plot of land for laying a foundation. A little under a year ago, I found this four-acre plot outside the woods for a great price. The land is totally beautiful, nearly untouched by civilization aside from some electric poles. Now that I’m deciding how I want the cabin built, I’ve decided to make the house big enough for six people to live comfortably. Before, I wanted it just big enough for me and a guest, but then I realized I could rent it out in the future to make some money. After deciding what kind of materials and type of floor plan to use, I started picking out appliances. The best HVAC system possible for a cabin is what I want, since I know my guests will be greatly concerned with warming up during cold months or cooling off in the Summer. This cabin will be a vacation spot for many people in the future, and I don’t want them worrying about being hot or freezing! With that in mind, I’ve looked into installing radiant flooring since it makes the winter weather much more enjoyable. The flooring would warm the cabin efficiently, with low energy consumption. I wouldn’t at all mind if my power bill was lower as a result of using it, too. It’s funny how your plans can change over time, as I’ve realized from this entire process. Initially, I wanted to have a small hunting cabin to disappear to when I have time, but now I see that I can help families make memories for a lifetime – and make money doing it!
