Is Your Foundation Ready For Delivery?

  • Gravel and Vapor Barrier in Crawl Space
  • Center Support Walls Or Posts In?
  • Sill plates installed and anchored down? Top of sill plate must be flush, no anchor bolts sticking up.
  • Insulation on Crawl Space Walls
  • Hole for Septic Pipe

Room for the Crane?

  • The crane needs 40’ x 40’ of relatively flat ground right next to the foundation. We also need enough space to back the semi-truck up with your cabin on board. Give as much room as you can to work for delivery.
  • Make sure all trees and branches overhanging this area have been cleared and prepared for delivery. The crane boom needs room to swing from the semi-truck to the foundation.

Is Road Access Cleared For Delivery?

  • Road leveled out well for delivery?
  • Is it graveled or does it have adequate traction for the trucks and crane?
  • The road needs to be at least 2’ wider than the cabin modules.
  • How about branches down the road? Allow 15′ of free height so your cabin roof does not get damaged.
  • Leave extra room on the road corners. The semi has a custom-built trailer with wheels that can move the trailer sideways that allows for incredible maneuverability, but he still needs a good wide corner area.

With everything on-site ready to go, most cabins are on the foundation within 3 hours and by the end of the first day your cabin is anchored to the foundation, the two halves attached to each other and the roof on and weather tight.
