Frequently asked questions

What is Modern Cabana?

Modern Cabana has been a leading builder of modern accessory dwellings in the U.S. since its founding in 2004. Modern Cabana has gained national recognition for its elegant, economical spaces that make it convenient and cost-effective to add accessory space to any home, and has installed its buildings for scores of customers across the U.S.

Modern Cabana was founded by brothers-in-law Casper Mork-Ulnes and Nick Damner—one a designer, one a contractor, and both on a mission to manufacture beautiful, affordable prefab with a small footprint.

Why did Blu Homes acquire the assets of Modern Cabana?

With the acquisition of Modern Cabana, Blu Homes will be able to provide homebuyers with greater options on size, convenience and price. Modern Cabana’s commitment to high quality design, building integrity, and green ethos make it a superb addition to the Blu family. Modern Cabana helps customers build small and beautiful spaces like yoga studios, carpentry shops, playhouses, garden sheds, workshops, home offices, and simple storage space. They are ideal sister products to Blu’s more spacious Origin designs, which offer fully conditioned living and work spaces.

How big is a cabana?

Cabanas can range from 120-300 sq. ft. Because of their size, they often do not require building permits, providing a simple, fast way to add space to a property without the headaches of the traditional building process.

How much does a cabana cost?

The cost of a cabana depends on the size and other specifications. Blu Homes will announce official pricing in 2014.

How is a cabana built?

Modern Cabanas will be built in Blu’s California factory, “flat-pack” delivered to a customer’s location and installed by Blu craftspeople. Like Blu’s homes, Modern Cabanas can be put up much faster than conventional construction.

How long does it take to build and erect a cabana?

A cabana takes only 2-3 weeks to manufacture, and is then shipped to a homebuyer’s site where it is erected in as little as one day.

What makes a cabana green?

Like Blu, the Modern Cabana embraces the environmental principles of reducing waste, building efficiently, and using clean, non-toxic products. Modern Cabana structures use Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified framing, lumber and siding, as well as unique recycled denim insulation. Bamboo flooring and lasting materials also ensure that beauty and lasting eco-friendliness go hand-in-hand.

How will a cabana fit with my new or existing Blu home?

Modern Cabana’s units will be tailored to fit seamlessly with Blu’s models for visual consistency, and both can be integrated graciously with a customer’s site by Blu’s award winning architects.
