STEP-BY-STEP BUYING PROCESS
We make buying a prefab cabin easy by walking with you through every single step.
During the initial consultation, our team will help you choose the right size and layout for your tiny home needs, and determine if you need any upgrades to our already epic base package.
1. Choose your layout and style
If you have not decided on a cabin series, we can help you decide what is best for your needs before buying a prefab cabin. We will start by asking you questions about how many bedrooms you need, how much square footage is needed, and what type of designs you like. You can browse through our floor plans or we can work together to create a unique layout.
2. Choose major upgrades
Westwood Cabins are not stripped-down models. We include everything you need to make a prefab cabin a home. However, there may be some upgrades that would make your home just a little sweeter. Here are some popular upgrades.
- Mini split HVAC system
- Granite or quartz countertops
- Metal roof (with color options!)
- Built-in porch
- Interior loft space
- Farmhouse sink
Upgrade to granite or quartz countertops, sink & faucet designs and more!

There are many things required when building and placing a small modular home. Some responsibilities are ours as the manufacturer and some are yours as the consumer. We work together with you to make sure everything is covered!
ABOUT WESTWOOD CABINS
We understand it can be difficult to find that perfect housing option that is both high-quality and budget-friendly. In fact, some of our customers tell us they thought they would never find what they were looking for. The truth is, searching for a small home should never be like this! That’s why it’s our goal to provide high-quality, affordable prefab cabins through an easy and stress-free process.
Modular means the home is built in our factory, placed on a permanent foundation, and becomes real property.
Our pre-built cabins are constructed at our production facility in South Carolina. We invite you to visit us to see how it's done.
We are licensed in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia. Each cabin is constructed to meet local building codes.
Our team is equipped to help you through every step of the process--design, cost, requirements, site prep, financing and more!
