We have 5 Kentucky Industrialized Building Systems (KIBS) modular approved plans for portable, prebuilt, assembled residential models. These models are 2009 International Energy Code compliant and state inspected in shop, and are currently the only cabins made in Kentucky which are KIBS modular approved as residences.
Deluxe Cabins feature the hybrid wall system with energy efficient 3Ht insulation, 200 amp electric package installed/Kentucky inspected, kitchen, bedroom, loft, dormers, and bathroom. Basic Cabins are basically unfinished cabin shells, delivered prebuilt and assembled and ready for you to finish as you wish.
We deliver the fully built cabins (either Deluxe or Basic) on a custom trailer which can place the cabins on a foundation or piers or pad. It can deliver up to a 40′ long approximately 10,000 pound fully assembled/prebuilt cabin, and place it on a foundation with about a 1/4″ tolerance. Delivery of the prebuilt cabins includes required wide load permits and escort vehicles to meet state requirements during transport. We deliver the cabin kits via flatbed trailer and no special permits or escorts are required.
We can deliver the prebuilt modular cabins about anywhere, if the road is wide enough (15′ access) and no obstructions above (15′ high with cabin on trailer). Steep unpaved grades or loose gravel or dirt is possible for delivery, if buyer arranges and pays for local bulldozer standby during delivery. With our standard 4WD delivery truck pulling the delivery trailer, mud is very bad, as is loose gravel, loose dirt, or any ruts in road.
We’ll even deliver your Amish furniture in the cabin at no extra delivery charge, and also your purchased appliances/woodstove from Lowe’s in the cabin at no extra delivery charge, if you want us to do so.
This is a 2 cabin end to end cabin install we did in Virginia. 1 cabin is set on its foundation already in this picture, and the other foundation is ready for its cabin. Here you can see the type of crawlspace foundation we can set these cabins on. We also can set them on a full basement foundation (no more than 3 blocks high above grade). This is a 14′x40′ foundation with sill plates, center piers down middle that we set 4″x6″ timbers on across the 14′, then the 40′ skids under the cabin rest on the 14′ cross-timbers. Then we bolt the cabin to the foundation from underneath with iron anchors into the block sidewalls, all hidden from outside the cabin. The cabins this size weigh about 10 tons anyway, so they’re not going anywhere easily, especially with the iron anchors.
