Amish Cabin Company in Kentucky

“Shelter Publications,

 Hi, we love small well-built houses.  Actually, we love small well-built cabins to be specific.

   Our Amish-built cabins are built in a custom off-grid facility on a Kentucky Amish farm, approved as modular homes, built to international residential codes, and are delivered prebuilt and placed on permanent foundation, as deeded real estate with traditional 30 year mortgages available at around 5% annual rate currently. We’re seeing monthly payments of about $225 per month on our prebuilt deluxe 14’x40′ cabins with 2 lofts that add another approx. 300 sf of floor space. They include bathroom(s), kitchen, porch, all electrical and plumbing fixtures, exposed post and beam timber frame construction, exterior/interior doors and cabinetry built by Amish, with beautiful white pine from floor to ceiling including all doors/walls/cabinets. Energy efficient 3Ht insulation with energy star rated insulated double pane windows. Heat/air option available, as well as 2 off-grid solar power options.

  1. Look nice.
    But it fails my number one test for a practical home – rainy day, walk in the door – where do the wet coat and boots go?

  2. I agree. A person could really make a mess of that place in no time.

    I don't know if this would be an authentic Amish home. I see an electric fan in the ceiling and from what I know the Amish don't use electricity. 🙂

  3. Hi, our off-grid Amish shop in Kentucky can currently build modular cabins built to residential codes for under $70 per sf finished and under $40 per sf unfinished insulated shell, plus delivery charge. Depending on size, cabins can currently be built/delivered in as soon as 4 weeks after order. 5 cabin models offered in various sizes each. We can place them on crawlspace, basement, piers, or slab foundation. Please see for all pricing, pic's, video's, options, delivery info and more. Solar power options also.

  4. Love it! Comment to other reviewers….Just because it is "Amish built" doesn't mean it can't have electricity. Amish do build for Englishers and meet their needs (IE: electricity.) Also, on a rainy day, have a floor matt, wipe your feet, and place your boots on a drain matt……I guess it al boils down to, "If you are neat in your home, you have a place for everything and put everything in it's place." If you are messy, well then, you'll have a messy home. ….I love this and can't wait to have one!!!!!!!!!!!!
