Working with Knotty Pine Cabins was the right choice for us, the style of cabin is exactly what we had envisioned for our home at the lake and they helped us make it a reality. The staff was friendly and responsive throughout the process from design to delivery, and continued to support us through the build. What made Knotty Pine the right fit for us was the flexibility, we were able to design the cabin to suit us and then decide how much we wanted to do ourselves. Once we had the foundation ready we had them set us up with their build crew to get it framed and to lock up, they did a great job and were in and out in about a week. We wanted to do all the trade work and interior which has taken a fair bit longer than a week but we have enjoyed doing it ourselves and in the end it is exactly how we wanted it. The other nice part about Knotty Pine is that once the cabin was designed they managed all the logistics around ordering and delivering material. So everything is there, insulation, poly, lumber, right down to the screws, so we weren’t running around looking for things throughout the build. And, if anything was missing or damaged with the shipment they were very good about covering costs for replacement material. The only thing that I would have done different is have better storage for material on site; there was an unexpected delay between delivery of material and construction so a lot of the material sat outside for a few weeks. In all, the quality of the materials and the overall build exceeded our expectations. Construction with quality plywood and lumber has made for a solid structure that is well equipped for everything that Saskatchewan will throw at it. In terms of cost, obviously you need to look beyond the cost of the basic package but our cost was very reasonable compared to anything else that we priced out and the look, feel, and quality of the cabin for us was great value. At the end of the day it’s been a very good experience for us and we look forward to many years in our Knotty Pine Cabin.
