We spoke to Gayle Zalduondo, who is one of the founders of Puck and Blossom , the company behind Cabin Fever. One of the coolest things she told us about the ZipCabin is that at just 120 sf, its a permit-exempt structure in most areas. Since one of the biggest headaches when putting up a backyard getaway, workstudio or guest bedroom is acquiring a permit, the fact that the ZipCabin  doesn’t need one (in most cases) makes it really appealing.
The cabin  comes with everything you need to set it up without a contractor (though a handy person or carpenter is recommended), and Gayle said that though they gave themselves 3 days to put up the cabin for the show, but it actually only ended up taking them a few hours. The integrated raised foundation with built-in covered deck is included and everything is packed flat, making it more eco-friendly to ship.
The ZipCabin’s large deck can be added on for an extra $4,000, and was the perfect place to showcase Puck and Blossom’s line of striking metal furniture . The versatile powder-coated pieces can be used both indoors or out, and are made of recyclable metals like aluminum, bronze and copper.
