A $10,000 owner-built cabin using the Little House Plans Kit

The owner used friends and family to put this home together and purchased $500
worth of "outside labor". I assume this was for the hookups for electrical and plumbing.
The siding looks like stained plywood with 1x3 battens, the roof galvanized iron - simple and direct.


Kitchen of the $10,000 cabin -  Small but workable, the bathroom door is on the right and the
ladder goes up to an office in the loft. Note the pine wood paneling.

The loft office - The owner put up used ponderosa pine 1x12 on the ceiling
and finished it with polyurethane clear varnish.

main floor bedroom.
