Jeff Milstein - the bolt together house

Plans for this cabin were originally published by Family Circle magazine in 1972. Questions about this interesting owner-builder project have bubbled to the surface of the small home building forum for many years.

The photos and diagrams below will tell you more about the project including a free download of the 1972 article about the house. At the bottom there is information about how to download the plans.

The project was fabricated in a barn, driven to the site by a car
pulling a trailer and then assembled in the woods.

Please note the plans are not up to current codes so they are meant only for ideas and NOT FOR CONSTRUCTION.

Jeff Milstein, the designer, has freely allowed us to share these historic plans. Here is his note: "This is a great plan for ideas, especially about a preassembled small cabin. These plans are over 35 years old and are not designed for and do not meet most building codes. They are offered for historic and artistic interest only. NOT FOR CONSTRUCTION".

We are grateful to Jeff for his generosity in allowing CountryPlans to offer these plans and help keep this little corner of the internet alive and healthy for builders and enthusiasts of all stripes!
