NestMaker: What’s Included?


This is one of the most popular questions we receive during our daily interactions with customers. NestMaker Cabins is the perfect fit for clients that are willing to take on the role of a general contractor with the added ease of our unique prefab system. We offer a great alternative to building for the budget-conscious customer, as our cabin packages are broken down into individual kits for your convenience. This means that you can have us supply as much or as little as you wish for the structure of the cabin. Read on to discover what’s included in our home and cabin package and what is additional.


At NestMaker start with a base cabin package. From there, we allow our customers to add some of our optional kits to build a more complete cabin package. Why you might ask? We truly believe that each customer and cabin is different! If there are certain items that you don’t require or wish to supply yourself, we can easily accommodate that. This allows our customers to use our cabin packages for a variety of purposes – seasonal cabins, year-round cabins, primary residences, garages, bunkhouses, hunting cabins, and more!

Items included in the base cabin package:

  1. Pre-framed 2”x6” exterior walls shipped in 8’ sections, on average

  2. Engineered roof trusses designed with consideration of the local snow and wind load

  3. ½” plywood sheathing for the roof
