The Cabin Fever cabins are built in the factory, then disassembled, packed and shipped to the customer, to be reassembled on-site.
Packages with bathrooms and kitchens include all the fixtures needed, but Cabin Fever recommends that a licensed plumber install the plumbing on-site. Cabin Fever does work with customers to make their cabins off-grid and as green as possible.
Cabin Fever is also responding to the need for affordable, sustainable, and safe housing in Haiti by partnering with several business enterprises and agencies on major prefab design projects for relief and transitional shelter. Davidrc, I had seen these prefab cabins in the past under the MetroCabin name as well, but their website had been updated with new images and names that I thought fans of the Tiny House Blog would appreciate. Russ, I gave Christopher, the owner of Cabin Fever, your question about purchasing one of their units without the kitchen and bath unit. Seems like a lot of wasted upper wall space – it could easily be decreased in height by placing the toilet along the back wall. Kaplan, Picture Maker - choosei»? from sub-menu abovePerspective is at the heart of good realistic drawing. Because in most places a shed under 100 square feet is unregulated by zoning or building code rules.


Additionally, because sheds are all different sizes, you will need to measure then estimate your need for the following items – thin strips of 6’ long wood trim, reed fencing (we used 6 foot high reed fencing), a straw seed starting mat (we used Turf Starter Seed Germination Blanket).
Use a saw to cut the wood trim pieces enabling placement at the top and the bottom of the shed. Roll out the straw mat over roof of the shed until covered with extra hanging over the sides [see above]. Staple remnants of matting onto the roof and wood trim to hide the wood trim on the side of the shed from showing. Some independent garden centers have it – it will be in the grass seeding area ordinarily. She has a "make a difference" focus on green lifestyle living, organic gardening, and healthy food recipes built to inspire. For fans of prefab tiny houses, these three words describe the beautiful designs of Cabin Fever, based in Irvine, California and Miami, Florida.
They work with various companies and help the customer specify and choose suitable products and then make sure that cabin can easily accommodate the equipment by reinforcing certain areas, building access doors and cabinets to house battery banks, etc.
Their Miami branch is based in the Little Haiti neighborhood and they feel a special obligation to help with the Haiti rebuild effort. Actually, the search for this company and its products was pretty deep down in Google-land, I felt they should be brought to the surface. I just revisit the site, refresh what I liked or didn’t like about the design and move on. I phoned myself and although I did not yet speak with anyone, I was impressed by the fact that they were very diligent in trying to call me back. Perosnally I’m more inclined to rustic feel of prefab log cabins expessally when it comes to building a small cabin for the lake. With the addition of a reed fence and straw roof, my ugly plastic resin garden shed has been converted magically into a cute little tiki hut [see top photo]. By using this site or any media associated with Shawna Coronado, you agree to the "Terms of Service".

Each of the Maxwell Cabins, or its lower priced sister, the Morris, can be expanded into several different sizes including the 12 x 16 MINI up to a 1000 square foot 2-bedroom cabin and many sizes in between.
I spoke to Christopher Thompson, the owner of Cabin Fever and he really appreciates the exposure and his company’s work with the people of Haiti.


Drill trim evenly onto the reed fencing around the bottom and top of the shed, securing it to wall [below]. With the addition of a few tiki toches, some chairs, and a palm tree I have the perfect garden spot to enjoy a cocktail with my friends, family, and a certain special rock and roll carpenter. I found this particular straw matting at Home Depot because none of the local garden centers carried it. All hardware, nuts and bolts, screws and nails, and a full set of engineered architectural drawings are included. I did this a couple of months ago and have it bookmarked as a place to go back to and re-examine. In my case, I highly recommend guitar playing carpenters, so I chose my good friend and local rock star, Ricky Rolon [photo right], to bring my vision to life. Hold mat down with a piece of trim set over the wood you already have drilled into the wall that supports the reed fencing. I found it outside in the area where they sell grass seed and wheelbarrows and other matting.
Depending on local soil conditions, codes and site grade, cabins can be built on a concrete slab or a wood timber foundation system.
Each are under 500 square feet and allow for passive solar heat through their large windows.

Plastic resin sheds are often recyclable, but I could not afford to replace it and wanted to stretch out the sustainability a bit and see how long I could make it last. Drill trim into the existing trim with straw matting between to secure straw mat so the wind will not rip it off of the roof. Look at all of these sites and follow up on the links, you’ll like what you find fairly often. For under $100  we converted the plastic building into the cutest little tiki hut ever by covering the shed in reed and straw. Come on guys, I came into this stuff pretty late, I’ve only had limited (and sadly, dialup) web access again for about 3 months now.
All the supplies are found at home and garden stores across the nation, making this project a super easy one you can do yourself.
