You can build a log cabin

My land by the lake was finally paid off and my wife wanted a log cabin.

You know what that means!

We shopped at the manufacturers of log homes and were completely blown away by the prices. Not only that, they didn’t offer the customizations that we wanted…some of the things we asked for were non-negotiable.

After two weekends of looking at all the log cabins we could find in our area, we came home tired and discouraged. Over coffee, we started making a list of the things we absolutely wanted in our lake home. It was clear as we kept at it, we needed a custom home. If we could get the shell, we could do whatever we wanted inside.

 

Like a light bulb went off, we both said, “Let’s just build our own.”

 

Having no idea where to start, we went to the internet and it wasn’t long before we ended up taking a good look at online plans. Turns out there are way more than sheds in these arsenals of designs. Who knew?

 

There were log cabin plans right there in packages of downloadable designs. It took us all of 2 minutes to pay for a package and begin looking at cabin plans.

 

So Many Choices!

 

From the simplest floor plan to 5-bedroom log cabin designs. We almost did a happy dance right there.

In no time at all, we chose a plan and started compiling what we would need – after all, we laid out everything exactly like we wanted. We got to pick the cabinetry and the flooring and – well, gosh, we were just beside ourselves with the excitement of it all.

 

It did take a while. It’s not like building a tool shed, after all. But in less time than we expected, we had our cabin built and were moving the beds in.

 

And it’s exactly what we want.

 

So, if you’re THINKING of owning a log cabin, before you spend a bunch of money on one of those cookie-cutter options – take a few bucks and purchase these plans for all kinds of portable buildings – I’m sure you’ll find exactly what you want right there.

 

If you’re bound to spend money anyway, just hire yourself some reputable contractors and give them your plans. That way you can get what you want and still have someone else do the work.

 

But, for us, I’m so glad we chose to do it all hands-on – we really appreciate our new cabin by the lake. And we know every inch of it – intimately.

 

Take a chance – You’ll be surprised at what you’re able to accomplish!

    Ahhh… a log cabin is my dream home too. Tucked back in the woods in the hills near a lake, or at least a big stream. I never knew you could just buy plans and build it yourself. I’m not sure I’m brave enough to tackle that big of a project. Great ideas on here though! It’s inspiring me.

    Saving money for a log cabin is a really nice idea. What I really appreciate is the fact that you decided to build your own, that shows courage and strength.

      It costs much less to build a log cabin than most folks think. You can build your own too, if you want to.
