Premium Floors for Superior Durability:
The flooring in the metal cabins offered by Outdoor Options is designed to provide a strong and durable foundation. It incorporates several features to ensure stability and longevity:
The cabins are constructed with 4''x6'' Ground Contact Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) skids. These skids are notched 1 ½ inches to cradle the 20 gauge Galvanized Steel 2''x6'' floor joists securely. The floor joists are then screwed into the skids using 5/16''x 4'' lag screws. This construction method provides excellent lateral support and ensures a sturdy foundation for the cabin.
The floor frame is decked with ¾'' Tongue and Groove Plywood, which is known for its superior strength and durability. Unlike thinner plywood options, the ¾'' Tongue and Groove Plywood provides a tight seal, eliminating concerns about sagging seams and acting as a barrier against pests entering the cabin. The plywood is screwed to the floor joists, offering a secure and maintenance-free floor system that can withstand heavy loads.
The flooring system has a 125-pound per square foot load rating, making it capable of supporting substantial storage needs. The combination of the robust skids, reinforced floor joists, and Tongue and Groove Plywood decking ensures the floor's strength and reliability.
For additional protection, Outdoor Options offers an optional floor enamel coating. This coating consists of an Extreme Block primer followed by an enamel coating, creating a spill-proof and stain-proof finish. The floor enamel coating adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring the plywood is sealed from spills and increasing the lifespan of the floor.
Overall, the flooring in the metal cabins by Outdoor Options is designed with high-quality materials and meticulous construction techniques. It provides a solid and long-lasting foundation for the cabins, offering exceptional strength, load capacity, and resistance against pests. The option for a floor enamel coating adds an extra level of durability and ease of maintenance, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a reliable and low-maintenance flooring solution.
Craftsmanship and Quality:
The framing in the metal cabins offered by Outdoor Options is designed to provide strength, durability, and structural integrity. The walls are constructed using 2''x4'' roll-formed (20 gauge G-90 galvanized) steel wall studs placed on 24'' centers, ensuring a sturdy framework. To enhance the structural integrity, there is a belt stud running horizontally halfway up the walls around the perimeter, creating a rock-solid seal on all exterior siding seams. The double 2''x8'' wall plate adds further strength to the walls.
The floor framing begins with solid 4''x6'' Ground Contact Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) skids that are notched 1 ½ inches to securely cradle the 20 gauge Galvanized Steel 2''x6'' floor joists. The floor joists are screwed into the notched skids using 5/16''x4'' lag screws, providing lateral support and increasing the strength of the floor. The floor frame is decked with ¾'' Tongue and Groove Plywood, which is screwed to the floor joists. This choice of plywood ensures superior strength, preventing sagging seams and providing a maintenance-free floor system. The floor framing is designed to achieve a 125-pound per square foot load rating.
The roof framing consists of 2''x4'' roll-formed (20 gauge G-90 galvanized) steel rafters placed on 24'' centers. The roof rafters are aligned directly with the wall studs, providing strong support from top to bottom. The roof frame is laid out in a grid pattern with framework every 24'' across the pitch, ensuring the cabin's strength and enabling it to meet or exceed local roof load and wind zone requirements with a 180 M.P.H. rating. The roof pitch comes standard at 3'' on 12'' but can be upgraded to 6'' on 12''.
The framing in Outdoor Options' metal cabins is engineered to withstand the test of time and provide a solid foundation for the entire structure. With high-quality materials and expert craftsmanship, the framing ensures the durability and longevity of the cabins, making them a reliable choice for your storage or recreational needs.
Durable and Customizable Options for Rustic Charm
The siding options available for the metal cabins offered by Outdoor Options provide both aesthetic appeal and durability. There are two main types of siding to choose from:
Lap Siding: The lap siding pattern is similar to Dutch lap vinyl siding, offering a versatile and attractive design. It allows you to match the siding of your cabin with different types of siding on your home. Made of aluminum, lap siding is known for its low maintenance and ability to dissipate heat effectively. It comes in a variety of colors, with options ranging from 7 standard colors to 11 upgrade colors. Lap siding is a cost-effective solution that provides the aesthetic appeal of traditional construction without the extra expense.
Twin Rib Pattern: The twin rib pattern is a more durable design that is less prone to denting compared to other aluminum patterns. It is an excellent choice for areas where the side of the building might be exposed to potential impact from lawn mowers, bikes, or balls. Like lap siding, twin rib pattern siding is made of aluminum and offers low maintenance requirements and heat-dissipating properties. It also comes in a range of color options, allowing you to customize the look of your cabin.
Aluminum siding has several benefits for metal cabins. It is known for its durability and longevity, making it an ideal choice for outdoor structures. The siding requires minimal maintenance, usually only needing occasional washing with dish soap to remove mildew. Its ability to dissipate heat effectively helps shield the cabin's interior from the sun's heat, keeping it cool. Aluminum siding is also resistant to rust and corrosion, ensuring that it will withstand the elements for years to come. It provides protection against pests and debris, maintaining a clean and well-maintained appearance. Overall, aluminum siding is a cost-effective solution that combines aesthetic appeal with durability for long-term use.
In summary, Outdoor Options' metal cabins offer two siding options - lap siding and twin rib pattern. Both choices provide the benefits of aluminum siding, including low maintenance, heat dissipation, durability, and protection against pests and debris. With a range of colors available, these siding options enhance the look and longevity of your cabin while providing reliable protection from the elements.
Durable Roofing Options:
The roofing in the metal cabins offered by Outdoor Options is designed to provide durability, protection, and longevity. The cabins feature a 29-gauge painted steel roof, which is thicker than traditional tin roofs, ensuring a robust and sturdy roof that can withstand various weather conditions.
The metal roofing follows a 5 Rib pattern, commonly used in residential applications, providing a classic and visually appealing look to the cabin. The roof panels are installed vertically, running down the pitch of the roof, ensuring efficient water drainage and minimizing the accumulation of debris. This installation method is recommended for optimal performance and longevity.
The cabins also feature a Continuous Metal Roof System, which guarantees a leak-proof roof. This system utilizes a continuous piece of steel roof metal from one side of the building to the other, with a crimped ridge. It eliminates the need for traditional metal ridge caps, providing better protection against water, debris, and pests entering the cabin.
The ridge of the metal cabin roof is screened to prevent the entry of debris and pests while allowing for proper ventilation and airflow. This feature reduces maintenance requirements and helps keep the cabin interior cool and fresh.
The metal roofing is available in a variety of baked enamel colors, allowing you to choose a roof color that matches your style and preferences. This range of color options provides versatility and the ability to coordinate with other elements of the cabin's design.
With its durable construction, efficient water drainage, and leak-proof design, the roofing system ensures protection from the elements and contributes to the overall longevity and quality of the cabins. The metal roofing is designed for a 40-year lifespan and comes with a warranty, providing peace of mind regarding the quality and performance of the roofing system.
