My all time favorite structural designs are log cabin homes. They can range from simple structures to fancy and high quality custom built log homes to suit individual needs. If I were to build one I would opt for the old style, traditional build log homes. My grandfather and uncle built my mothers log home in the mountains from the ground up. They used logs cut down from their farmland, prepped them, and put everything together. All was done by hand. It is still standing today and a super cute getaway in the mountains of Austria. There are easier ways to enjoy a log home today. From custom build to Log Cabin Kits, you can have whatever your heart desires.
How about spending your next Vacation in a Mountain Log Home?
Build you own Log Home
I have a neighbor who built a Custom Log Home on some acreage. It is nested among some big Oak Trees and blends right into the landscaping. This is a great idea for a custom built home if you like your home to stand out. I would build something like this on a ranch as a weekend getaway. I found some companies who offer Log Home Kits and Custom Plans. Choose from available Floor Plans or custom design you own. Here are some great sites to get started.
There is something cozy and comforting about Log Homes. Imagine relaxing by a fireplace or campfire out back. Maybe some snow in the winter. When you look out in the morning you see the birds, squirrels and maybe some deer and other wildlife. This is what I envision down the road. Until then I am exploring the outdoors by renting log cabin homes for vacations. Give it a try. It is a great way to get away from the city and connect with nature. Create a memorable vacation for your family.
