This mother in law home cabin kit might just be the thing to make her happy. The log kit is the perfect mother in law cottage that is designed with the building option of adding on an outdoor porch to the front or the back in a size of your choosing. The mother in law home cabin kit has one bedroom, one bathroom, a kitchen, a loft space, the living area and the option of covered porch. Some of the log home kit building materials that are included in your home cabin kit include SIP panels that are used for both the walls and the roof. The log home kit also includes the white pine tongue and groove flooring, the exterior tongue and groove D-log siding, the vinyl windows and the 36-inch steel insulated entry doors. In this home cabin kit, there is also a house wrap, and roof felt, that is baked on enamel metal roof in your choice of colors, along with the tongue and groove interior finished walls. In the log home kit, there is also tongue and groove ceiling rafters and the ridge beam structure for roof UV, along with stain for the exterior wood protection.

In this log home kit, the walls and the roof use structural insulated panels. The structural insulated panels which are also known as SIP's are used in the both the walls and the roof for this home cabin kit. SIPs can also be used in floors, walls, and roofs so they can help to provide an extremely durable and energy-efficient high-performance log home building material. Structural Insulated Panels or SIP's as they are known, are typically made from a plastic foam rigid insulation that is layered between two structural surfaces such as oriented strand boards. These SIP panels are typically manufactured in different sizes or dimensions with a thickness' that varies between four to eight inches.

Some of the overall benefits of using SIP, structural integrated panels in your log home build is the higher R-values they provide. SIPs have a higher strength-to-weight ratio, therefore making them an excellent and efficient building material for your log home. The insulation that is offered by the SIPs is superior when they are compared to studs or traditional types of building and construction methods. SIPs can offer all sorts of energy savings anywhere from 12 percent to 14 percent. Using structured insulated panels can build a more air-tight unit resulting in a quieter and more comfortable log home. SIP's will save you money in the overall building with a faster construction method. Using SIPs as a building material also helps to reduce the amount of labor and waste in your cabin building process.

Using a home cabin kit for a family member or use as a guest house or vacation retreat is a cost effective way to get the extra space that you need. The thing about log home kits is that they typically take a lot less time to build, so that means you can get the extra space you need in a less time. This is because log home kits have most of the work done for you, and all that's left is the building of the wood cabin. With so many wood cabins that are available there is something to suit most every lifestyle and need. This is just one of the home cabin kits you will find on the Green Garden Chicken site. On the site, you will find a variety of home cabin kits, solar and wind, off-grid solar kits, wood cabins and log cabin kits, grid tie solar kits and so much more. **
