NEW... Custom Peerless Post and Beam Off-Grid Cabin Kits. Ideal for off-grid and remote site situations as well as resort cabins, rural property second structures, rental income cabins, and even for laneway or carriage house applications. Smaller versions are moveable and a practical alternative to the Tiny House idea. The structures are entirely Post and Beam design... not stick framed... Peerless has made and sold custom Post and Beam structure kits for a decade as sheds, barns, stables, backyard studios, offices and outbuilding projects, plus house kits in remote locations. This new product is based on a unique design idea, using a Post Pedestal Design in which the floor is SUSPENDED from the heavy posts, rather than being built on a standard pre-built foundation pad. This design has several unique advantages... particularly for remote sites. (1) Doesn't require large and expensive concrete foundations. (2) Very adaptable to rocky, steep or wet ground flood plain areas... (3) Easy to add later modifications eg. wrap around covered porch. (4) Structurally strong (5) Steep roof design is perfect for addition of Solar Panels for true off-grid power if desired. The steep roof sheds snow well and gives a better panel angle for off season solar collection. (6) The Posts which extend to the foundation, can be extended upwards to provide loft, all integrated into the structure. (7) Simple rectangular design is ideal situation for heating with single source heat like a wood stove. We have a smaller 10 x 16' (160 square foot) unit under construction at our Cobble Hill location. (See Pictures) This will be used as our business office, as well as being a demo of the structures and showcasing our totally unique AND 100% LOCAL, finishing products such as solid wood flooring, shou-sugi-ban siding and barn board. Charred wood antiqued beams shown are an available option on kits. Other sizes and styles are on the drawing board, ranging from 100 square feet to over 400 square feet.
