Color Options

What color is your house and garage? Get a 12×16 cabin that matches your property and adds to the aesthetic of your home instead of taking away from it. Take a look at our color options and find the color for your cabin that you want. Choose from our selection of paint colors, like dark brown, dark blue, and hunter green, or our shingle color options like black and light brown. We even offer various vinyl siding colors for your cabin.

Siding and Roofing Materials

What type of siding and roofing would you like for your 12×16 cabin? Check out our options and choose the one that is the best fit for you. Our T1-11 siding is a durable and affordable choice that is a popular option for shed and cabin siding, but wood siding may have a more charming and aesthetic appeal to it, especially for cabins in woodsy settings. We even offer metal siding for a more industrialized and modern look for your 12×16 prebuilt cabin.

Vent Options

Keeping your cabin dry and ventilated is very important, especially when the weather is damp and humid. Our cabins are prebuilt with pressure-treated flooring, allowing airflow under the floor to keep it dry. Our shingles come with molding around the edge to prevent deterioration from moisture. We offer a selection of vent options for your cabin as well, like our ridge vents that run along the tip of the roof and allow humid air to escape through the ceiling. Consider a cupola to ventilate your cabin and add a stylish touch to your cabin.
