ALL KINDS OF SHELTER SYSTEMS FEATURED BELOW

  • LOG CABIN HOMES • This section specializes in online businesses that sell prefabricated log cabin kits and precut & grooved logs. This is probably the best way to go for a modern person desiring a Log Cabin to live in. I have about 58 different companies listed on this page and they all offer something unique to their product. If you know of a Log Cabin company i am missing from this list, please email me with your new addition. Thanks.
    Also, be sure to visit: "LOG CABIN HOMES" Pages: 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6.
  • SHIPPING CONTAINER HOMES • Also called Conex Boxes/Containers, Seagoing Containers, Storage Containers, Cargo Containers or ISBU (Intermodal Steel Building Unit), but the official name is "ISO Transport" and are becoming more popular used as Homes, Office Space, Medical Units, for Retail Sales, & Personal Storage. This section specializes in online businesses that design structures using these Containers or they sell these shipping containers outright which are in great supply i understand. This is a home or cabin conversion method which has experienced rapid worldwide growth because of the availability and low cost of these containers.
    Also, be sure to visit "CONEX CONNECTION" Pages: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9.
  • SMALL COMPACT HOMES • Portable & Non-Portable. This section specializes in online businesses or individuals that sell prefabricated small and some not so small houses or cabins; some on wheels and some not. Also, included are tiny house or cabin projects by anyone, anywhere. Cabin/Cottage/Hut/Home sizes can range from 96 SF (8ftX12ft) to 1024 SF (32ftX32ft). Some may be a little bigger. Sheathing almost always made from either wood, steel or some form of plastic. Contents inside are organized into "Pages" to make loading easier for those on a slow internet connection.
    Also be sure to visit "SMALL COMPACT HOMES" Pages: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, & 9.
  • YURTS & EVERYTHING ABOUT YURTS • This section specializes in online businesses that sell prefabricated yurt systems. Lots of different designs and material used for finishing the walls, etc. Wall covering ranges from cotton canvas to fiberglass to wood. Most Yurts are made to be portable and some built as permanent structures here in the US and everywhere else.
    Also, be sure to visit "PORTABLE YURTS" Pages: 2 & 3.
  • SIP BUILT HOMES • This section specializes in businesses that sell SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) and/or build homes using the SIP panel. I sometimes use the term "Insulated Foam Panel" which to me is the same. The acronym SIPs refers to panels made from a thick layer of foam (4-6in of polystyrene or polyurethane) sandwiched between two sheets of Oriented Strand Board (OSB), plywood or fiber-cement. If a person can afford it - this is the best system to use in my opinion especially in an area of severe weather, either too hot or too cold.
    Also, be sure to visit "SIP BUILT HOMES" Pages: 2 & 3.
  • HARD COVERED DOME STRUCTURES • Includes both Prefab Kit & Owner Built. This section specializes in online businesses that sell prefabricated geodesic dome kits or geodesic dome home systems, plus other owner/builder dome building information. I need to make a distinction here. In this page is grouped together Geodesic Domes (i.e. domes using triangle shapes as structural framework) and airform domes which use an inflated rubber bladder that is coated with some kind of stucco like material and allowed to dry to produce a shell to be finished with other material and procedures. Big difference. Two very different types of building process, but both called dome building. For right now i will keep them both together. But just wanted to let you know that there are two very different dome systems being shown here.
    Also, be sure to visit "DOME SHELTER SYSTEM" Page: 2 & 3.
  • SOFT COVERED DOME STRUCTURES • This section specializes in online businesses that sell materials and kits for the retail consumer. All listed here use a soft synthetic fabric, plastic or maybe canvas covering. Available are dome kits and accessories. Also included is access to sites which show you how to build your own Dome Structures or framework, like for example out of bamboo sticks, PVC plastic pipe, electrical metal tubing (EMT) & other material. This section also presents the lowest cost options for building portable dome structures useful to the individual or for use at group events like Burningman.
    Also, be sure to visit "GEODESIC FRAME" Page: 2 & 3.
  • SHELTER FRAME CONNECTORS • This section specializes in online businesses that sell metal frame member connector systems mostly used for Building Sheds and Cabins to attach standard lumber sizes (2X6, 2X4, 2X3, 2X2, 1X2 inch) and timber frames together to make either dome like frames or conventional box type frame shapes. Using these Connectors should theoretically make your building project go up faster and stronger.
    Also, be sure to visit "SHELTER FRAME CONNECTORS" Page: 2 & 3.
  • LIVABLE TENTS • This section specializes in online businesses that sell prefabricated four season canvas cabin/wall tents. Some of these manufacturers also include tipis or other native type dwellings in their inventory. Also included are family camping tents: Tents that are freestanding and large enough for use by 8 to 12 people, but may or may not accommodate a wood burning stove.
    Also, be sure to visit "LIVABLE TENTS" Pages: 2, 3, & 4.
  • SMALL HOME, CABIN & COTTAGE PLANS • A source for Cabin, Cottage, Small House, Shed Plans & Do-It-Yourself Building Guides. This section specializes in online businesses that sell shed and cabin building plans with emphasis on small to medium size units. Contains some sources for free plans. An effort is made to limit the square footage to under 1000 SF. Also included are free plans and Plans for dome building or any other irregular shaped building. And also included are do-it-yourself websites that offer free advice or instructions on building a particular type of building like a shed, home office or cabin, etc.
    Also, be sure to visit "COOL CABIN PLANS" Pages: 2 & 3.
  • HOME OFFICE SHEDS • This section specializes in online businesses that sell prefabricated home office or garden office, retreat, garden studio type buildings. Most of these type of structures are slightly different than a common shed in that the use of glass and a more finished interior with nice paneling is applied throughout. Plus they usually have electrical service with outlets and are insulated for better temperature control. They resemble a stand alone Office Shed you might find downtown at the mall.
    Also, be sure to visit "HOME OFFICE SHEDS" Page: 2.
  • WOOD SHEDS • This section specializes in online businesses that sell prefabricated stand alone wood or wood product sheds & kits. Wood shed siding might be made of: Oriented Strand Board (OSB), Cedar siding, T1-11 siding, or sanded plywood. Also included are individual wood shed building projects featured on Youtube or on peoples' personal websites. I have tried to include information on "How To Build A Wood Shed" from websites and YouTube videos. Many US counties allow the addition of a small building or Wood Shed not to exceed 120 SF (10X12FT) on most residential properties. This wood shed site has been very popular over the years, please enjoy your visit here.
    Also, be sure to visit "WOOD SHEDS" Pages: 2 & 3.
  • PLASTIC SHEDS • This section specializes in online businesses that sell prefabricated freestanding polyethylene or resin sheds. Also included are Vinyl Sheds or storage buildings. Vinyl is different than Polyethylene. Vinyl is actually PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) the same plastic used in making the very common PVC water pipe. A person could probably live in one of these Plastic Sheds, but i would not install a wood stove, too much shielding required plus might be generally very dangerous . . .
  • METAL SHEDS • This section specializes in online businesses that sell prefabricated freestanding metal sheds or kits. Arrow Sheds is one of the most common and famous purveyors of Metal Sheds. Metal sheds can be used as small livable cabins also, best to set-up on a wood platform. Even though it is possible for one man to assemble a metal shed (i did it myself under great duress) it is much better to have an extra person to help with the job, believe me. Metal sheds are very popular and usually available from most any major retail outlet like: Sears, Home Depot, Lowes, Amazon, & 84 Lumber.
  • TIPIS | TEPEES | TEEPEES • Refers to Native American Indian Style Tents. This section specializes in online businesses that sell prefabricated Tipis and sometimes other tent systems. I try and list only Tipi makers that make Tipis suitable for year round living, Tipis that a person could live in full time if they so desire. I try to stay away from "historical reproduction" Tipis made for historical re-enactors and collectors, unless they are also suitable for full time use.
    Also, be sure to visit "LIVABLE TIPIS" Pages: 2 & 3.
  • G-Wood House
    IRREGULAR SHAPED SHELTER SYSTEMS & DESIGN • This section specializes in online businesses or designs that use non-traditional odd shapes for construction. Included are individuals who have invented unique design structures which can be copied by anyone for their own personal use. Some of these Shelters listed here are what i call "personal shelters" great for one or two people in a camping situation.
    Also, be sure to visit "IRREGULAR SHELTER" Pages: 2, 3, & 4.
