Charming Vermont-Made, Ready-to-Ship Eastern White Pine Cottages

Jamaica Cottage Shop 1

The beautiful and impeccably crafted small structures built by the Jamaica Cottage Shop can function as play houses, freestanding backyard offices, sheds, bunk houses or simply extra living space. All of the designs are hand made in Vermont using native rough-sawn, full-dimensioned lumber grown, harvested and milled within the region – including siding made of kiln-dried Eastern White Pine.

You can get anything from a basic cabin or cute cottage with a mini front porch to a screened-in Florida Room, which offers an insect-free outdoor getaway. These little buildings are available in three forms: kits, plans, or fully assembled.

If you live in the Northeast, having a fully assembled building shipped right to your door is a convenient option, while those who live farther away can follow a set of detailed step-by-step instructions to either assemble the shipped parts, or use the plans to have their own materials procured locally.

Putting together an 8×10 Vermont cabin takes just about 20 hours, and can be done at any skill level. The precut lumber package includes pre-dimensioned siding, precut roofing sections, trim, windows and ready-to-install doors. Some kits even include vintage 1800s factory salvaged windows.
