Cottage and Shed Purchasing

Each year, students in Madison College's Construction and Remodeling program gain real-world, hands-on experience building sheds and a transportable, energy-efficient home under the guidance and supervision of our highly skilled instructors. These affordable, high-quality buildings are available to the public for purchase.

For more information about purchasing a shed or home, contact Jen Voichick at 608-246-5213.

You can buy a well-crafted, energy-efficient home at an affordable price. Crafted under the direction of three master carpenters, this year's home features:

  • 1,100 square feet of space
  • Two bedrooms, a large kitchen/dining area, living room and bath
  • Net-zero efficiency. With the addition of solar panels, this home produces as much energy as it consumes.
  • Open floor plan
  • Sustainable building methods
  • Single-story, "age-in-place" design

Upon completion, your home will be ready to go and easy to transport to a location of your choice.

The cost is as low as $75,000 depending on the features and materials you select.

Our 7' x 9' student-built sheds cost $1700 for vinyl or smart siding and $1900 for cedar siding. They include a 5-foot double door opening and a small window. They feature either a gable or shed roof.

The cost of the sheds covers only the materials used to build them. We do not charge for the labor involved. Delivery in the Madison area is included in the purchase price. We usually deliver sheds in the spring.

A $200 down payment is required.
