MetroCABIN was developed in direct response to those customers looking for a larger pre-fab modern space. MetroCABIN is a livable 16 feet deep by 20 feet wide multi-use open plan space.

The MetroCABIN is Transportable Architecture; a distinctive pre-fab structure built in a factory and assembled by our team or you on your site. It’s a livable getaway cabin, a studio, an extra room, a cabana, or a mountain retreat. The simple and sophisticated design allows it to exist easily in an urban setting, while the quiet strength and sturdy attitude are comfortable in a more rugged environment.

The MetroCABIN is not a low quality “KIT.” This unique space comes with the wall panels pre-assembled. All other parts are precision cut. It’s engineered to exacting specifications and built with the highest quality materials. Two people can assemble the cabin in about 3 days.

General Description & Specifications

At 16′ deep x 20′ wide it is a generous room. It has an expansive, airy feel due to the ceiling height which is 9′-9″ in the front. The cabin is built on a propriety floor system. This system is constructed of treated timber perimeter wood beams, engineered joists, and 3/4″ wood sub-flooring. The walls are stud-built with wood siding on the exterior. The cabin is trimmed in durable, high-grade spruce wood throughout. The curving galvanized steel beams support the 2″ x 6″ tongue-and-groove pine roof deck. This strong attractive feature is the ceiling and the roof deck, all in one modern package. Our cabin is topped with an advanced roof system. The Duro-Last roof is a 1 piece prefabricated reinforced thermoplastic roofing membrane. This roof is virtually maintenance free and comes with its own 15-year warranty. The cabin has an 8′ gliding front door, 4 operating awning-type windows and a fixed transom window over the door. Windows and doors are made by Andersen.
