A TR-1600 and a Mountain View

Feb 13, 2020 |  Building of the Month

Zach and his father have had their Colorado property for years, using the land for hunting trips and weekend getaways. But he wanted to add something more to the land; a cabin. Zach came to Tuff Shed with a plan to make the most of the mountain views.

After some research on local builders in the Colorado Springs area, Zach decided that a Tuff Shed building would be the ideal solution. As an engineer, he knew he could add his own design expertise and finish out the interior just as he’d like. “I’ve seen these buildings every time I stop by the Home Depot and I really liked the quality of the standard products,” says Zach. “I had a lot of fun working with the team to add the design elements I wanted.”

He decided on an 18×54 TR-1600 with an extra long, wrap-around porch and a total of 22 windows to take in the mountain range view. Zach looks forward to finishing out the interior over time, putting his home improvement skills to the test. But the DIY elements don’t intimidate him in the least. “I really enjoy projects like this and working with my own two hands. I’ve found it makes me appreciate the space a lot more when I’m putting in the work myself.”

The new cabin has plenty of room for weekend hunting trips and holiday celebrations, just like he planned. “It’s been really incredible to see it start to come to life. I’m looking forward to having the space finished and making memories with our family and friends there.”
