Kit Homes and Cabins
Kit homes from Absolute Steel are the best value of any home or guest house kit on the market today. You get our internationally known frame system, exterior siding, roofing and complete engineering for your whole project. We also supply you with a complete materials list, covering all the odds and ends that are most easily supplied by a local vendor. We call those “grocery store items.”
Absolute Steel provides you with everything you will need
to get your home kit or guest house finished and ready to live in!
Kit Home and Guest House Styles and Floor Plans
We offer four handsome exterior styles, each ready to build in several exciting interior floor plans. That means you can select the home or guest house kit best suited for your needs and budget.
The Sierra style is a classic home kit design. Its vertically-oriented exterior wall and roof panels are designed for a distinctive look, and superior runoff for rain and snow.
This is the most popular of our home kits, the Sierra represents the style you see most often, and boasts our stand alone frame system. The stand alone system easily allows you to clad or cover the outside of your building with most any type of exterior material, without modifying the frame system or having to add steel components in order to attach your chosen exterior materials.
House kits in the Teton style feature heavy-gauge exterior panels, designed with the appearance of wood shiplap siding. These panels and the Teton’s larger eave overhang give it an especially traditional, homey look.
Because of the way the Teton’s walls and roof are engineered, home kits in this style are also a bit easier to erect than other styles. That saves time and effort for if you’re a do-it-yourselfer, and can reduce labor charges if you’ve hired a contractor.
The Alpine style is ideally suited for areas with deep winter snows. Its steep roof lines shed snow easily – just what you need if you’re building in the high country, or heavy-snow regions.
In some of our floor plans, the Alpine’s steep roof also gives you extra storage space up above the living areas.
You’re sure to recognize the Gambrel style cabin kit’s signature roof design. Yes, it’s the same design used on big barns across the land. It just happens that that design – sometimes called a Dutch hip or Dutch gambrel – makes for an ideal cabin. The steeply sloping roof sheds snow with ease. And there’s plenty of room up there for storage. Or better still, you can even choose that old cabin favorite, a space-efficient and cozy loft!

Easy to Assemble
Your kit home’s finished shell can be put together by as few as two people, with little or no prior construction experience and using common tools! This means YOU can do it, whether you build yourself or act as an owner/builder using local tradesmen and contractors.
If you’d rather not take on the whole job yourself, we’ll be happy to guide you in choosing which steps to hire out, and how to choose a contractor.
