HOW WE BUILD

The WEE CABIN Company is a licensed and insured Residental Building Contractor in the state of Minnesota. We design and custom build a structure to satisfy your wants, needs and budget.  We will work with you to understand what size structure will best suit your lifestyle and family size.  We can develop the plan, or cooperate with your architect.

WEE CABINS are constructed of wood influenced by centuries old Tudor timber-framing and using modern building materials.  We want all the structures we build to be as appealing on the inside as they are on the outside.

Materials used:  Doug fir timbers,  metal roofing,  pine interior/exterior,  Marvin & Eagles windows, insulation, steel hardware. We will explore other materials for your WEE CABIN if you prefer.  For additional information on materials used, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Construction. Once you've decided on the size WEE CABIN you want, the frame and roof materials are ordered. After materials are received, the frame and roof are built inside a controlled environment.  The frame is cut, fitted, assembled, numbered, taken apart and then transported out to the build site to be re-erected. The main frame is erected on footings or a slab.  The entire roof system is constructed on-site, including the windows, and lifted onto the cabin by a crane.  This method of building saves our clients money and is safer for our craftsmen.

Once the roof is lifted, we add walls, insulation, windows, electrical and plumbing if requested, interior trim, deck, screen porch and flooring. All electrical, plumbing, excavation, slab/concrete work, wood stove installation, solar, well and septic work are sub-contracted with local licensed and insured contractors.
