Fox Den

Our number one bestselling

The Fox Den Mezzanine is our number one bestselling cabin by far! The cabin is built on a 10M2 footprint of 4.2M long by 2.4m wide and has an overall usable space of 14M2 because of the mezzanine floor, which can fit a Queen-size bed with ease. Many of our customers use the Fox Den Mezzanine Cabin for Airbnb and Glamping cabins because of the sleek design and useable space.

The standard Fox Den Mezzanine Cabin has a Ranch Slider and a 1000H x 1000W and 800H x 700W window downstairs and 500H x 1000W window upstairs, all double glazed as standard. Lined in either painted MDF or whitewashed Okoume Ply and clad in vertical Coloursteel Corrugate the Fox Den Mezzanine has a stylish look and is incredibly durable. We take pride in the fact that all our cabins are insulated above NZ code the new Residential Tenancies Act standards, including the South Island and Alpine zone.

At Fox Cabins we believe in creating warm, dry, stylish, and durable living spaces that will withstand the test of time, so every cabin is built to the New Zealand Building Code, to the same standard that you would build your own house.

Our cabins are fully customizable, from lining types, cladding colours to window and door sizes, types and locations, flooring types, skylights, addition of PV solar power, and Heat Pumps. We can add kitchenettes and bathrooms to all our models. Call or email us for details!
