Born out of the necessity to create a basic home from materials available in the abundant forests, the settlers constructed their first shelters as log homes. From these basic structures have evolved the log style homes we have today. Log home plans are a popular choice when it comes to building mountain and lakeside homes. Open floor plans can make the most of small spaces for simple designs that offer rustic simplicity.

Today’s larger log home plans evoke feelings of lodge-like splendor. Plans can consist of vaulted ceilings, rustic wood timber trusses, and fireplaces with large stone hearths. Walls of windows and doors are perfect for exposing majestic exterior views and bathing interiors in natural light. Indoor living seamlessly blends with the outdoors through covered porches, large decks, and cozy balconies.

Common to many log homes are features such as open sunlit floor plans that are ideal for grand-scale entertaining with great rooms, dining rooms, and kitchens that open to each other for casual traffic flow. Those seeking a smaller, cozier scale will find a large selection of two- and three-bedroom log style cabin designs that are great for affordable weekend getaway homes or affordable year-round living.

As our log home plans demonstrate, today’s log homes are much more complex than the one-room shelters of the past. Our diversity of styles and plans insures a broad range of architectural interpretations within this design style.

Take the time to discover the charming rustic details of our standard plans or explore the option to use one of plans as a starting point to create a custom log house plans. Enjoy a welcome change of pace with rustic living.
