Every material or system choice used to build the Q is based in a green technology.  We use steel stud and EPS foam wall panels,  natural fibers, high tech insulation methods, low-E insulated glass, passive and active solar systems, automatic ventilation systems and sustainable sized footprints.  The end result is an architecturally pleasing, resource efficient, and environmentally friendly cabin.

The Q Cabins are built with Quality in mind.   Our cabin shell is one of the strongest, most fire resistant and best energy performing cabin shells on the market.  Q Cabins are constructed of materials that do not harbor molds and mildews and are pest resistant.  Our windows and doors are top of the line, Low E, heavy duty extruded aluminum thermally separated windows manufactured in California.  A cabin built to play hard and last a lifetime.IMGP9982 (2)


The Q is designed to be at home in the mountains, the desert, the beach, or even a modern metropolitan environment.  The sweeping curves evoke a modern shape that harmonizes with nature.  IMGP9470 (2)

The shell concept allows for client customization with regards to finishes and interior configuration.  Your Q will be unique.2014_02_Donner_MetalRoof_0064 (2)

Q’s are spacious and versatile.  The design allows for modular spaces that can change with season, site orientation, number of occupants and whim.  The soaring ceilings are unparalleled in the cabin market.  The volumes created by the high curving ceilings add prestige to the modest sized footprints.IMGP9310

The Q’s design focuses on view.  Your vacation property is beautiful.  Q cabins are designed to bring the natural beauty of your site into your living environment.  A 17’ view wall in both the Mini and the Nautilus XP insure that the view is the dominant feature of the interior.  The Mountaineer has as many square feet of glass as it does living space.IMGP0370 (2)
