Suited for a fitness room, home office, workshop or guest space, these modules are flexible and affordable.

Thinking about adding STUGA to your property?

The first step is a SITE ASSESSMENT completed by a Studio Petretti team member.

Once we have your property address and initial preferences, we gather information and provide you with:

  • Summary Report, review of property regulations & opportunities

  • Three site plans that meet your preferences and show simplified floor plan layout

  • Fixed price for STUGA, excluding final site work estimate

Site Assessments are $500, due prior to starting work, and will be completed within one week of request. Please send a message to or use the form on this page and we will reach out via phone.

After the Site Assessment, you select a preferred site plan. Our team is available to design any unique site amenities (decks, patios, bike storage, etc.), apply any customizable finishes, and outline a final site work estimate.

STUGA will be ready to set in four months or less from final order to install. Studio Petretti project manages all engineering and permits required for building. Ask us about the details; we are happy to explain the simplified streamlined process.
