When fall arrives with its rainy and cold days, what could be better than relaxing at the cottage in front of the fireplace with a good book and hot cocoa in hand? There is nothing like the comfort of your own dream cottage. Whether huge, miniature, modern or rustic, the important thing is that it makes its owner happy.
Are you looking for a nature getaway? The mountains are calling you and you are dreaming of having your own place, far from the big cities? Whether it’s for hiking, hunting, having fun on a snowmobile, or just enjoying some quiet time, you may be considering building a cottage or a house in the mountains. But what does this type of installation requieres? It all starts with a good foundation!
Cabins, whether built as a weekend getaway or as a hunting retreat, are usually built on some sort of piling. This helps keep the cost of the cabin down, as the site preparation and foundation work are minimized. Having to install a regular foundation, with a footing, can add up to 10% to the overall cost of a cabin or cottage. Since most people who build a cabin are doing so for part-time use, reducing costs is an important consideration.
