MetroShed, in collaboration with its Miami-based partner Cabin Fever, recently announced that it would produce a smaller version of the popular 16′ x 20′ MetroCabin in 2008.  The smaller MetroCabin will be 12′ x 16′, with prices starting at $17,460 (which includes flat-packed shipping and delivery).  The new MetroCabin features curved steel roof beams (or the straight roof package), Duro-Last roofing, prefab SIP walls, and premium heavy-duty sliding doors. 

And although the company’s MetroShed product is built with greener materials such as FSC-certified woods, I’m not sure if this one is.  That said, if you live in this, and this alone, I’d say you’re pretty green. 

MetroShed anticipates an increase in business with people staying put in their current residences and looking for extra space for that office, art studio, exercise room, or guest suite.  Matter of fact, I’ve said it before, but I’d love to have one of these in the back to blog and exercise in.  So relaxing.  Company founder David Ballinger says most people will use this smaller unit as a getaway cabin or second home in some retreat area of New York and California.
