Need a small cabin to live in while your dream barndo is being built? Here are 25 options that will fill the bill with eco-friendly style — and, when your barndominium is complete, you’ll have a charming, self-contained cottage right out the back door to accommodate overflow company or to function as a home office.

Where are the best cabin kits anywhere? These 25 small cabin kits are just a mouse click away. And they run from a low of only $4,850 to a high of just $54,990 for a spacious 2 story kit. They’re compact, they’re smart, and they’re available for shipping on Amazon usually in less than a week.. And they can be built even by DIY newbies usually in just 8-10 hours.

QUICK NOTE: This post looks at 25 finely crafted wooden mini-barndo and cabin kits ranging from 100 sq ft to 1300 sq., turned out by one particularly skilled builder. If you’re looking for true barndominium kits that are more metal than wood, however, from 400 sq ft to 1,200 sq. ft, click here. And for much larger DIY kit shells, check with Texas Barndominiums, 866.812.2226.

Back to these cabins…

These are not huge structures. They are instead mostly tiny home kits that aren’t really in the same league as the 5,000 square foot behemoths you might see dotting the grassy plains of the Texas Hill Country.

Instead, they’re the kind of charming, relatively low-priced retreat that will serve you well for many years. And they will even boost your property value, whether the structure goes on your 20-acre plot of land in the country, or graces your backyard as a home office, man cave or she shed.

Here are the facts.

You’re looking for a low- to mid-priced cabin that you can build with a buddy on land you own either inside or outside the city limits.

It can provide fashionable shelter during the construction phase of your barndominium.

Or, you might just want a cozy dwelling that can also serve as a retirement cottage on a lake or up in the mountains in your golden years.

Most of the examples on this page can be assembled by only two people in a day. They’re compact and uber-cute, designed as they are to save space and give you a fully functional getaway cabin or small barndominium for less than the cost of a good used car in most cases.

They’re even shipped free right to your door — something few other cabin kit builders offer.

What’s the lineup of possibilities?

Today, we’ll showcase The Allwood Outlet, one of the lesser known — and least expensive — players in the manufacture and delivery of the highest quality DIY barndominium shells and cabin kits. We’ll include some that may seem way too small to live in full time. And we’ll even borrow a few from the phenomenon that has come to be known as the tiny house movement.

Just remember as you review these sometimes petite kits that one man’s garden shed-sized cabin may be another man’s treasured retreat.

And pay special attention to the models with an ingenious sleeping loft built into them. You — and/or your kids — will long remember the nights spent up under the fragrant Nordic Spruce rafters of your getaway cabin in the woods, in the country, or in your own back yard.


Here are 25 DIY kits available from premier kit builder Allwood Industries, partnering with giant retailer Amazon.

They are presented from lowest price — and lowest square foot area — to the largest DIY kit available from this builder. Many are well under $10,000 – and only two cost more than $32,000.  And, all prices are subject to change and may be higher or lower than what appears here. Just click the picture to see today’s actual price.


Lillevilla Escape – 113 SQF Allwood Kit Cabin – $4,690

Small enough to qualify as a very tiny house, but large enough to be on the extreme low end of barndominiums, this 113 sq ft Lilliputian structure is really all one person needs — especially when situated on a large wooden deck like the one shown.

You can also use this design as a yoga studio, guest cottage, lake house, retail kiosk or home office. Just exercise your imagination.

Two people can easily assemble this all wood cabin in one day. Building the deck may take an additional day. It’s a relatively easy DIY challenge with a purpose. Could someone live in it year-round? Add insulation and a heat source plus (possibly) a room air conditioner and you’ll be set.

But this is true for every cabin or small barndominium on this page.

Only minimal tools are needed to assemble it, and extra wall planks are available if you want to expand.

Key Points

  • Inside Floor Area: 113 Sqf – 9’1″ deep x 12’5″ wide
  • Wall thickness: 1-3/4″ (44 mm) – Nordic Spruce Dual Tongue Windblock pattern
  • Ridge Height: 8′ 3″ | Wall height 6’5″
  • Door: 33.5″ x 69.7″ | Window: 46.9″ x 34.2″
  • Minimum site footprint 13’1″ x 9’8″ – Weight 3200 lbs

NOTE: These first few cabins don’t provide for running water and there is no toilet, So make provisions for an ice chest or apartment sized fridge and microwave along with a chemical john and lightweight moveable screen for privacy.

Here are the main features:
