How to Decide on a Log Cabin Kit Floor Plan

So you and your loved ones have decided to purchase a log cabin kit home. Congratulations! Log cabins are a unique and cozy form of housing that’s often overlooked by first-time homebuyers and seasoned homeowners alike. These homes are extremely versatile due to them being built from a kit. Because of their versatility, log cabins come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, with dozens of floor plans to choose from. Read on to see what you should consider when selecting a log cabin kit floor plan.

Consider Your Land Size

Chances are, you’ve bought the land that your log cabin home is going to be built on. As such, you need to take into account the size of your land when looking at log cabin floor plans. You mustn’t select a floor plan that takes up too much space on your land, thus leaving you without much of a yard, or a floor plan that’s too small, leaving you and your family needlessly cramped. Experts like those at Frontier Log Homes (https://frontierloghomes.com/) can help you narrow your options as well.

Consider Your Family’s Needs

The size of your family also determines how big your home needs to be. If it’s just going to be you, your spouse, and a small pet, you’ll need significantly less space, compared to a family with multiple children, or a multi-generational home. The number of floors, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, and other factors will need to be considered when buying a log cabin for your family.

Consider Decorations and Fixtures You’d Like in Your Home

Have you ever seen chandeliers and other lights hanging in offices and thought they looked pretty cool? Well, there are many unique and cool lights you can add to your home to bring in that style. It’s a smart choice because it can not only bring in more light but also soften your facility a little. Luckily, just like traditionally-built homes, log cabins can accommodate lighting fixtures of different shapes, sizes and setups. However, just like with any traditional home, it’s still important to measure the size of each fixture against the size of each room within a floor plan.


Overall, buying a log cabin home instead of a traditionally-built home provides you and your family with plenty of options. As such, it’s important that you have a list of criteria in-hand when comparing floor plans, so you buy a cabin kit that suits your family’s needs to a T.
