Cabin Dreams Made Portable 3 Custom Portable Cabins in Missouri

Dan Salinger - June 10, 2023

You finally did what you have always dreamed of doing! You’ve taken months, maybe even years, to find the perfect piece of land to enjoy your time off. This location has everything you and your family have always wanted. A great water source for the wildlife, mature trees that offer an abundance of shade, and the perfect spot to sip your morning coffee and take it all in. Everything seems just perfect for your new property. Except for one big thing, you have no idea where you are going to shelter yourself and your family when you go to your new property (cue panic music).

You thought about the tiny house idea, but it seems like a lot more fuss than you thought it would be, and you say to yourself: “Who wants to be confined in such a small space for all the time that we plan to spend there”? So what options are you left with for your new land purchase? Perhaps the old family camper no one wanted? Maybe we could do some tents when it is nice out, but what about hunting season when it gets cooler? What is a yurt anyway? What you really want is something you could you buy that would be totally customizable. A piece that is original and unique to you and your family’s needs. Something that says to others, “Who built that? I want something like this on my property”!  With nearly a decade in business, 5 Star Buildings is happy to introduce you to portable cabins. Our Portable Cabins could be what you have been dreaming about but never knew!

Nobody really wants their cabin to be a bland eyesore that looks like everyone else’s, and maybe the term “portable cabin” is conjuring up the wrong idea in your mind, so let’s set the record straight.

What Is A Portable Cabin?

A portable cabin may not be what you are thinking. It’s not a cabin on wheels, a tiny house, or even a fancy way to say camper. A Portable Cabin is a fully-built cabin shell that is produced in our local shop and transported to the final site via a delivery truck. Portable Cabins are sometimes known as prefab cabins. Typically, if you get your portable cabin from a reputable local builder like ours, your cabin will not only be high quality, but it will also be customizable. In fact, check out our 3-D builder to design your Standard Cabin, Lofted Cabin, or Estate Cabin today!

Are Portable Cabins One Size Fits All?

Unlike a big box store, we believe in making custom Portable Cabins for you, our customers. You are unique, and being sold something that feels inauthentic to you does not feel good. We treat our customers to the best experience and service we can. We will walk with you to customize your Portable Cabin. Our Portable Cabins put you in the designer’s chair, making your custom dream come to life.

How Much Am I Able To Customize My Portable Cabin?

We let you customize anything we can. We use residential grade material so that you can rest assured that your Portable Cabin is built with excellence. Our teamwork approach will guide you through the creative process as much as you like. Looking for a metal roof or want a traditional shingle roof? We can do either! Want a dedicated door style or a different window placement? Not a problem. With our wide selection of Sherwin William paint colors, we can totally customize the walls and trim of your cabin. With us, your trusted local builder, your design is what works best for you and the memories you want to make. We are here to make your dream come to life.

Your Custom-Built Dream

Building YOUR dream is OUR dream come true. We have built portable cabins on every type of budget. Our customers say building their portable cabin was easier, more cost-effective, and more relaxing than any other option they found. Living in their newly built portable cabin has given them the cozy and comfortable feeling they were looking for.

Your Dreams Made Whole

What build options are available for my Portable Cabin?

We offer 3 Portable Cabin Models. We offer a Standard Cabin, a Lofted Cabin, and an Estate Cabin. We stand behind each one of our Portable Cabins. However, each cabin has its advantages in the way that it is designed.

The Standard Cabin

Our Standard Prefab Cabin is our starting point in our world of Portable Cabins. This cabin is a great addition to any new or existing property you own. This cabin gives you your own space for crafting, music hobbies, or as an outpost for your next hunting or fishing trip. This is also an excellent option for a guest space on your existing property. Even in our most basic models, we are true to our mission: YOU dream it, WE build it! 

The Lofted Cabin

Our Lofted Cabin is our next Portable Cabin option. When looking at The Lofted Portable Cabin you may be wondering: “Is it worth the difference from a Standard Cabin to a Lofted Cabin”? The lofted cabin is a great way to get more space out of an already existing footprint. The Lofted Cabin allows you to have a larger main space for gathering together in your new portable cabin. Having the lofted area gives you peace of mind knowing that your hunting equipment is in a safe area away from children. Additionally, this loft can be used as a sleeping or hang-out space. Imagine all the new memories that will be made when you can fit more people in this portable cabin space. If you love dreaming up the idea for your Standard Cabin, you will love dreaming up the options we can make happen in this space also.

The Estate Cabin

Our Estate Cabin is our top-tier option in our line of Portable Cabins. Imagine all the fun you and your friends will have as you make memories, tell “The one that got away story” or have your annual family reunion at your “Weekend Estate”. Like our other models, you take control of the high-end finishes, porch size, and window count. No matter what this space is used for, we know that your customized Portable Estate Cabin will build bonds with family and friends beyond the weekend.

How To Know If A Portable Cabin Is The Best Solution

What makes any one of our Portable Cabins better than a “Traditional Cabin”?

With all the customizable features of our portable cabins, you are more than likely thinking about the infamous question “How much is this going to cost in the end”? There are three major factors that make portable cabins more affordable than a traditional cabin.

1. A traditional concrete foundation is not required for the installation of a portable cabin. In fact, many of our customers use a gravel base similar to what is used for a shed.

2. A quality portable cabin is built in a local shop and takes advantage of more efficient labor and allows for less waste.

3. Your dream cabin is going to take less time to construct than a traditional cabin, ultimately saving you money and putting it into what you want. Any one of these factors makes these cabins more customizable and more affordable, but with all of them together, we feel that this makes getting a 5 Star Portable Cabin a triple win!

How do I know which building options are best for me?

With multiple building options, you find yourself wondering: “What portable cabin suits my needs best”? Is it the simplicity and compact size of the standard cabin, the additional space offered by a lofted cabin, or the luxury of an Estate Cabin? If you feel paralyzed by the options we offer in design, reach out and talk to us, we are always happy to help our customers find the best solutions to their custom dreams.

Delivering A Portable Cabin

Getting your cabin delivered is the most fun part of the whole project. Fortunately, this process is really simple at 5 Star Buildings. Here is a quick video that we made that demonstrates what it takes to get ready for delivery day. If you have ever had a storage shed delivered, you will see that the process is the same.

Investing in your Dream

Everyone worries about whether they are making the right decision when spending their hard-earned money. All of us here, at 5 Star Buildings, are no different from you. We want the best product that our money can buy us.  Making an investment in one of our portable Cabins is no different. With our commitment to faith, honesty, and integrity being at the forefront of all we do, we know your dream can be built by us. And if having the cash on hand right away is an issue, take a look at our rent-to-own program. Here we can help you to fund all or part of your portable cabin.

Get in touch with us today, we will start by listening to your ideas for your cabin. Then we will team up with you to develop a plan to make your dreams come true, and finish with a portable cabin that you will love for generations to come.
