Advantages of a Modular Cabin

Advantage Of Owning A Modular Cabin: Quality

An advantage of owning a modular cabin is the quality of how our cabins are built. A cabin is something that is sometimes passed down to the next generation. Therefore, it is an investment you want to gain in value. 

We have direct supervision of all building aspects. Our own framers and finish carpenters are closely screened and hired on as a long-term part of our company family.  

Riverside Cabins finds highly qualified, licensed, electricians and plumbers who are the best in their profession. Often, on a site-built home, these trades are hired according to who is available.

Here at Riverside Cabins, we KNOW that our craftsmen are great at their trade.

Think of a custom sitebuilt home, only better. 

Another advantage to owning a modular cabin is how well we are able to build them. In order to hold up to the demands of being lifted with a crane and sent down the highway at 65mph, our buildings are built stronger than a site-built home.

We start with double 2×10 rim joists all the way around each section. Then, the main floor walls are bolted down to this rim joist beam. Finally, the 2×6 exterior walls have 3” of closed cell foam insulation.

Each of our cabins have engineered trusses designed specifically for your site. Do you have 150-pound snow load with 80pmh winds?  

We will build your cabin to hold up to those conditions. 

Advantage Of Owning A Modular Cabin: Simple Process

You will have one contact person for the entire construction process of your cabin structure.  

If you build a site-built home, you need to find and work with framers, roofers, plumbers, electricians, and finish carpenters. All finishes including cabinets, countertops, flooring, insulators, heating and cooling must be picked out.

You will have work to do on the site improvements like foundation and utilities.

With Riverside Cabins, we take on the bulk of the responsibilities, and one phone call to one person answers the questions for all those construction trades.

Your cabin and your foundation can be built at the same time.  

While  work is being done on your land, like roads, foundation and utilities, your cabin is getting built. Also, with your cabin being built in our building, we do not face weather delays like a site-built building can. 

This makes the whole process more efficient and your cabin or dream home id finished that much faster.

Advantage Of Owning A Modular Cabin: Weather

We build your building in our building.  

This allows us to keep everything out of the weather until it is ready for the weather. As a result, no soaking rainstorms or snow drifts will get inside your cabin. No 100-degree days overheating the lumber so that it twists and makes for crooked walls.

Our facilities allows construction to go on year-round and keeps waste to a minimum!

Permits and Inspections

Many rural areas have few to no permit requirements. What this means is that a site-built building will often have no official inspections to verify it is being built properly and safely.  

Our cabins start with a set of plans approved and permitted with the state the cabin will be going to. Then, either Montana state or licensed outside 3rd party inspectors will inspect the framing, insulation, wiring, plumbing and final product to assure it is being built to the latest codes.  

A Riverside Cabin is built to the “International Residential Code” books, the highest standards for residential construction.
