The goal was to fulfill their shared dream of building a cabin in the woods. So when they got there, they worked for six days building a 200 sq. ft. tiny cabin and got it the shell done for about $6,000.
For six days, we worked to turn a small clearing situated in a stand of stately Douglas Firs into a place of our own. Our fearless leader, a builder by trade, had the right experience to guide the project. But the rest of us were total novices. The project consumed 264 two-by-fours, ~40 working hours over 6 days, 3,000 photos, and about $6,000 (excluding the land we built on). We left Oregon convinced that there is no better way to spend a week with close friends — a cabin build will beat a week in Cancun every time.” — The Builders (Mac Bishop, Geoff King, William Dickerson, and Aaron Flack)
