The Tin Can Cabin is Finished

I’m not sure a cabin is ever truly finished, but this is as good a time as any to say it is… I still have a long list of things I want to do, but I’m finally to the point where I don’t feel “I have to” do them – at least for now.  Still on my wish list are a room divider between the desk and entry area,  a built-in storage bench for the entry, routered out rafters for the door locking bars, an upgraded bathroom with a composting toilet and a real shower stall, foundation skirting for some secure under cabin storage, and last but not least, a shipping container barn (more on this at a later date).” – Steve

    1. I don’t know if he ever posted that on his blog. He has posted a good DIY article, and you could ask him what the ballpark cost to build his cabin was.

      But the truth is that the cost will vary widely depending on land, improvements, container cost, how much you do yourself, how you choose to finish it, and how much time you want to spend finding good deals on materials.

      1. In the comments, he answers that question. He said he estimates $36,000 start to finish.
