Well, it wasn’t back in 1983 when Shelter-Kit Inc. was selling “The Lofthouse,” a modular DIY package that included everything needed to build a 480 sq. ft. cabin in the woods. According to the article, even an “inexperienced builder” could build a home from one of these kits. Sounds like quite the project for a beginner.
