STEP #2: INITIAL MEETING

Experience has taught us that when it comes to building backyard cabins, there are a few key fundamentals that when followed correctly, completely transformed our customers experience.

 

The two most important steps (while they might seem basic) are to find out as early as possible:

 

#1 - Is your block suitable for a backyard cabin? If so, what will it cost to build?

 

#2 -  Are there any permits required? If so, what do they cost?

 

Our customers will tell you that having the answers to these simple questions early, dramatically reduces the likelihood of any surprises along the way and ultimately set them on a path to achieve their cabin goals quickly and seamlessly.

We have built a simple system to give you access to the answers to both of these questions in just a few clicks and a brief meeting.
