A cabin isn't just a smaller version of your McMansion. A cabin doesn't have granite countertops and stainless steel state of the art kitchen appliances. A cabin doesn't have water features that you install.
A cabin is a different style of life. You figure out how to get warm by finding combustibles on your land. You get water by saving it from the roof in a cistern or pumping it from the ground. A cabin has simpler and more difficult ways of meeting your needs because you are far away from the infrastructure that governments supply.
A cabin is a triumph in ingenuity; a creation of form that follows a function unique to that little place on the earth where it is built. Otherwise, you may as well haul in a FEMA trailer.
