Why such a plain name? There are two reasons: First, we want to be honest and straight-forward - beautiful design is of course a supremely important goal for us, but so is simplicity. Second, this is your kit, your building. You name it whatever you'd like, and we'd very much appreciate your letting us know what that is!
Beyond the name, the design of this product is made to be clear, precise. Why is something like this what a child draws when asked to draw a house? It's not because this is what all the houses around her look like. If you pay attention, there are very few pure gable houses around - at least not any more. But the straight gable is historically the wheelhouse of home designs for many cultures and climates. It sheds snow and rain extremely efficiently. It allows for a high, open ceiling with few columns or interior walls. And, as chicken-and-egg as this may be, it just says "home", plain and simple.
The Small Gable kit comes in a variety of configurations, from just the framing to everything including all windows, doors, finishes, lighting, electrical, plumbing, toilet, bath vanity, etc. You pick what parts of you kit you want us to send you, and when you want them sent. We'll make sure everything is DIY ready, including pre-drilled holes for screws/nails, numbered/interlocking parts, and a custom, image-based manual for your configuration.

Please note: Because foundations and decks are best designed and built to fit your building site, they are not included in Homebuilt kits. However, we would be more than happy to help you pick the best options for each of these, based on your needs and site.
