Planning Your Your Log Cabin Design

log cabin design
What kind of log cabin design will you pick for your very own dream cabin?

Staying in a rental cabin is a nice way to spend your vacation, but how would you like to design and build your own log cabin?

Having your own log cabin is even better than renting one out because you can decorate it and design it just the way you like.

Trying to decide on your log cabin design can be a fairly long, but fun process.

Look below for some recommended books to get you started on deciding what kind of design you will have for your cabin.

I would even recommend staying in several different cabins with totally different designs in different locations of the country so you can decide what you really want.

Are you looking for a real log cabin? Will you be okay with a log sided home? Do you want a loft, game room, big kitchen, etc. Do you want a wrap around porch or a basement? These are some of the questions about your log cabin design you need to answer at the beginning of the process of building your home.

Anytime along in this process you can start looking at actual log cabin designs or floor plans. With these designs you can decide everything about your cabin from where your TV goes to what kind of furniture you'd like on your deck to where to put the barbecue grill.

Looking to remodel? Find a contractor to help you with your project.
Here are some other questions that could affect the design of your cabin. Are you building to give your whole family a retreat in the mountains? Will you be building to have friends vacation with you? Is this a permanent residence? Maybe you would like a small retreat to get away from it all and enjoy the beauty of God's creation with just you and your spouse.

The cabin to your left is one of my favorite plans. Large covered porches are an exceptionally nice feature on a cabin. They add a nice extension to the livable part of the house.
