When it comes to prefab cabin prices, there are many factors that come into play. Prices could vary depending on square footage, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, delivery distance, quality of materials, design complexity, and many others. So how exactly can we discuss prefab cabin pricing? Is there such a thing as an affordable modular cabin price?
In our attempt to make your modular cabin search less confusing and stressful, we scoured the internet to find the latest pricing for prefab cabins similar to what we manufacture here at Westwood Cabins. The following figures are rough estimates and could vary, as we mentioned in the previous paragraph. We hope, however, that they can be very beneficial to you and aid you in your search for the right housing option.
Prefab Cabin Prices in the Industry
For a small prefab cabin between 300 and 800 square feet, you can expect to pay somewhere around $60k – 160k. This comes out to about $200 – $300 per square foot, with some manufacturers falling a little below and a little above this range on some of their models. For comparison purposes, let’s see where Westwood Cabin’s prefab cabin prices fit into this range. Let’s begin with our biggest cabin series, Bear Ridge.
Bear Ridge models are 600+ square feet and have a base price of $110,000. This comes out to about $180 per square foot. The Creekside series, on the other hand, run 451+ square feet with a base price of $95,000. With those figures, the cost per square foot is about $170. Fog Hollow, our smallest cabin, is 434 square feet and $80,000. This comes out to about $185 per square foot. As can be seen, Westwood Cabins falls slightly below the middle of the above ranges due to our efforts of combining both high-quality craftsmanship and affordable pricing.
Prefab Cabin Price Types
Now, when it comes to modular cabin pricing, you must be aware that there are different types of prices, namely base price, custom price, delivered price, finished price, and all-in price. The base price only includes the cost of manufacturing the base plan, and doesn’t figure in customizations, delivery, or anything else. At Westwood Cabins, our pricing structure breaks from this slightly due to the fact that our base prices include delivery up to 75 miles. This is one aspect that makes our prices even more competitive and affordable in the larger market.
Continuing on, the custom price includes the customization options, but still does not include delivery, sitework, or anything else. The third type is the delivered price, which includes all of the above and delivery, but not any utility attachments, touch-up, our foundation work. The second to last price type is the finished price, which includes all of the above with the exception of taxes, fees, and cost of the property. Lastly is the all-in price, which includes every detail of your prefab cabin purchase.
When talking with your manufacturer, be sure you know what type they are referring to when they begin discussing prefab cabin pricing info with you.
