If you want to build your own cabin or shed, your most important assets are your tools.

When I was a child, my father told me, “You can build anything you want if you have the proper tools.”

He was absolutely correct.

So let’s get started…

The following is list you can use to finish your cabin kit or shed kit:

Circular saw


Extension cord


12 ft. tape measure

Marking pencil

Framing hammer

Carpenter’s level

Framing square

Chalk line and Plumb Bob

Safety goggles

Dusk mask

Work boots

Work gloves

You can either buy / rent these from your local store such as Home Depot.


If you need alternative power to your cabin, a 10,400 watts solar system kit will keep you off the grid and living a comfortable, “electric and mortgage free” independent life.

Once you have established where your cabin or shed will be on your land, you need to set permanent markers which can be periodically checked to determine the exact dimensions of the structure.

This can be easily accomplished by placing off-set corner stakes and then wrap a yellow mason’s line around the posts.

The following video is loaded with a ton of tips to help you get started. Bear in mind, your cabin kit could be much easier and faster than the one described in the video. Check your blueprints that arrived with your cabin.

Bunk Bed With Desk Saves Cabin and Tiny House Space

Whether you have a cabin, tiny house, getting ready to move into a college dorm or if you have a small bedroom, a combination bunk bed with desk is a convenient option for you to have.

Cabin space is crucial. And the two important elements we need are sleeping quarters and closet space.

If you are considering a totally separate desk in a small room, you may have had to avoid it just because you need to have enough space in your room for your bed and some dressers.

However, on the other hand, not having a desk can sometimes be a pain to deal with.

Instead of compromising, you can have two comfortable beds and a convenient desk in a room, even if you are a bit tight on space.

The desk is located underneath the top bunk bed, so you will have more space to move around on the floor inside of your room. Some models come with dresser drawers or a few storage containers.

There are plenty of styles available. In fact, the bunk bed over desk comes in both wood and metal materials. The metal style may be slightly more affordable, but the wooden options are often more durable.

If you decide to choose one of the many wood styles, make sure to pick a finish you like the most.

You can find this type of bunk bed in assorted colors, including white, brown, tan and navy blue.

Along with the bed frame itself and the desk where you can sit down to do your work, a ladder may be attached to the left or right side of the bunk bed, making it a whole lot easier for you to get up and down when you are ready to go to sleep or get up in the morning.

Before you buy one of these space-saving alternatives for your cabin or tiny house, make sure you measure the amount of space you already have available in your room.

You may need move some of your belongings around to ensure that it will fit perfectly.

Once you have it in your home, you will instantly notice how much more space you have compared to a traditional flat bed.

Now remember….

You are never too old to sleep on a bunk bed. These units comes in both adult and kid styles.

Imagine finishing your projects, checking your email messages and walking up the ladder to go to sleep.

Who wouldn’t want to have everything they need in one room?

This will make the perfect addition to your lifestyle.
