When it’s time to build your dream investment property, you will hear many things that may sway your final decision-making process. Some of these things are easy to avoid, and others may require more research. In this article, we help shed light on the most common myths about custom-built rental cabins to help bring you closer to the truth.
Cabins With Logs Are Prone to Mold
Many believe cabins are prone to mold because the materials struggle with moisture wicking, repelling, and barriers. It’s essential to note that any surface can attract mold and that mold is not specific to cabin materials.
It’s also worth noting that cabin materials are always treated before building. Industry guidelines and regulations advise that all properties must be built with the same respect.
The Care and Upkeep Is Tedious and Consuming
People associate delicate materials with increased upkeep and tedious maintenance. A custom-built rental cabin does not require any additional or time-consuming care or upkeep than a standard rental property. Identify a series of renter rules and guidelines to help mitigate problems along the way and ensure you design a space built on guest-friendliness to help reduce risks. Otherwise, there isn’t any additional work involved, making this far from the truth.
The Building Materials Don’t Need Special Treatment
Treating the building materials is critical to debunking these myths and creating structurally sound barriers. Additionally, some believe that cabin materials don’t need special treatment because they are almost always 100 percent natural. But pre-treating the wood and coating it with fire retardants, water repellents, and insect repellents is vital to ensuring long-term integrity and warding off avoidable damages.
Cabins Are Prone to Termite Damage
We often hear about the possibility of termites damaging the materials, construction, and structural integrity of rental cabins. Specifically, when the owners know they will be away long-term, they worry about being able to combat the termites.
It’s essential to note that once built, custom cabins are treated like every other property and receive the same termite treatments and maintenance. Insect-repelling mediums are just as essential to cabins as standard homes and perform best when 100 percent compatible with the chosen building wood.
The Cabin Makers Use a Building Kit
Often, people assume that cabins are built with a custom kit rather than a custom design. The misconception about the kits leads people to think that you have a few pre-determined designs to choose from and only the interior selections are custom.
Neither of these things is true, though. Partnering with a professional team can help you outline a rental cabin build that is different from those surrounding the property and offers you and your renters the amenities and layout you desire.
