Rockwell Classic Cabins


Classic Cabins are built by a small Amish crew. These skilled craftsmen specialize in providing workmanship typical of a century ago when every detail was important. Cabins are available in either traditional pine board and batten or heavy duty vinyl in a wood grain look that blends well in a wooded setting.

You can request photos of cabins that have been built by clicking here or the Send Pictures button and providing your name and email address. Your phone number is optional.

Only 3 or 4 cabins are built each year and with rare exception, Classic Cabins are built specifically for their owners. While not a totally custom cabin, they are tailored to the buyer's preferences within the size and style range of a Classic Cabin. Floorplans are unique to each cabin so a book of "standard plans" isn't available. These are definitely not kits, modular or precut cabins.

Built to minimize waste and maximize space, there are no hallways in a Classic Cabin. The various room layouts connect rooms and spaces directly using an open floor plan. That's why the space inside always seems greater than the overall cabin looks from the outside.

The all natural finish, knotty pine interior is light and airy. The warm glow of the wood creates a feeling of sheltering comfort. You'll find special touches throughout such as handmade towel racks and custom built pine cabinets. All cabins have an open pine stairway with thick treads and handrails, a favorite of Classic Cabin owners. Many of the cabins have a huge stepping stone leading to the front porch.


Cabins are sold as a package that includes the land, cabin, septic and well. All new cabins comply with the Uniform Building Code. Major appliances are included so your cabin is ready to be furnished and enjoyed at settlement.

Just as important as the construction of the cabin is the relationship of the cabin to its lot. Each cabin is situated so that it blends beautifully into its wooded setting. Most lots are wooded, between 2-10 acres and within 20 minutes or less of a boat launch or marina at Raystown Lake.


Lots are available to build your Classic Cabin, some within 5 minutes of boat launches in the Trough Creek area of Raystown Lake. We'd be happy to arrange to show you the available lots and answer any questions you may have about the cabins or the building process. The builder is completing a spec cabin for sale in the Trough Creek area and only a few minutes from state forest. Ask me for details: dan@apexrealtygroup.com.
When you pick out a lot, an Intent to Purchase is signed with the builder and a $1,000 deposit is collected. This holds the lot and a design session is scheduled with the builder. Once a cabin design is agreed upon, a completion date can be established. Prices vary depending on lot cost, cabin size, special features and current market prices for construction materials. Approximate starting price of a lot and completed cabin with appliances is currently about $200,000.

The builder is also willing to build on a lot owned or purchased by you depending on its location and access.

Occasionally a completed cabin will come up for sale as an owner moves on to other pursuits. Check with us to see if any are available or coming soon.

If you're intrigued by the possibility of owning your own Classic Cabin, we hope you'll contact us to find out more. Thank you for visiting our site.
