Modular cabins are models of efficiency and quality assurance. They offer a unique style, while still offering design flexibility and customization opportunities at a price that is difficult to beat.
While you can select from a variety of modular cabin styles, three of our most popular stles are log, rustic, and cottage.
The typical cabin kits used by many homebuyers to build their log cabin today weren’t available when settlers began building log cabins in the woods or on the frontier. Back then it was really hard. To build your home you chopped down your own trees, hauled them to the building site, and laid them in layers one at a time. But, if you’re planning to build a log cabin today, the task can be made much simpler. You can still buy cabin kits or choose the modern alternative. Log modular cabins are becoming more and more popular as a cost effective alternative to site construction with a kit.
While kits are available, they are still hard work. All of the pieces show up on flatbed truck and are dumped at the site of the cabin, or worse yet, have to be hauled in dozens of small loads in pickup truck to the site. With Log modular cabins the homes are built virtually complete in an indoor factory environment. With minimal onsite effort, the modular log cabin is set at the site, connected to site utilities and the foundation and soon ready to be enjoyed. Why would anyone want to waste an entire season of enjoyment building a log cabin when it could be ready to be shared with family, friends, and loved ones at that favorite mountain spot, or along a river or lake. Unlike log cabin kits with individual logs and wall panels, you get peace of mind knowing that your log cabin will be built tight keeping out drafts, insects, and rodents making your new cabin enjoyable for everyone in the family.
There is an expanding array of choices in today’s log cabin marketplace. Log modular cabins give you a fast, enjoyable, and safe option when considering a weekend getaway or retreat!
Cabins first made their appearance in America in the mid-1600s. Back then they were built less for aesthetics and more for function. The early settlers needed protection from the cold, rain, animals and unfriendly neighbors. Rustic modular cabins are still built with functionality in mind, however, more emphasis is put on the comfort and design, achieving the practical balance between form and functionality.
Many have fond memories of staying at a cabin on vacation and want to recapture the sense of relaxation and closeness to nature. The want to be taken back to that shared time with family and friends. Whether you’re still dreaming about a cabin, or in the process of making that dream come true, searching through plans of rustic modular cabins is a great way to decide how much you would be willing to put into and get out of that dream.
Rustic cabins differs from more elaborate log homes because of their simplicity and slightly rougher appearance. Usually only one story high (some contain a loft) and many with only one great room, these rustic cabins can be fitted out with bunks and a wood stove. Many cabins do offer separate bedrooms and baths which you can choose by searching our standard plans or you can bring us your custom design and we can custom build a rustic modular cabin for you. Our rustic modular cabins are cozy, warm, inviting, and at the same time give you the feeling of being one with the outdoors. Our rustic cabins are just that… cabins, no vinyl siding and drywall only if and where you want to see it. All of our cabins give you that mountain cabin feel with knotty pine walls and ceilings, with rustic log exteriors. You can design your rustic cabin with fireplaces, hot tubs, and decks.
Our rustic modular cabins come in prebuilt sections, or modules, that are assembled in a factory and delivered to your cabin site. Our rustic cabins can be constructed with one module or in several. We can custom design a cabin in nearly any architectural style. You can have log siding that imitates virtually any type of log but without the maintenance and hassle associated with real logs.
Ask anyone to define a cottage and will likely get a different answer from every person you ask. A common definition for cottage is:
a small simple house, typically one near a lake or beach; a dwelling forming part of a farm establishment, used by a worker.
If ever there was a style that stirred the imagination, it is the cottage home. Everyone paints their own mental picture of a cottage, whether it’s a cozy one-story vacation home nestled on a lake, a rustic home in the woods, a small house on the beach, or a storybook-style house. No matter what type of cottage home plan you’re looking for, you’ll discover a wide range of styles from which to choose. Our homes offer dormers, steep gables, quaint porches and thoughtful rooflines. These are just a few of the features we can offer with our modular cabin cottages.
Modular Cabin Cottage house plans are informal and woodsy, creating a storybook charm. Cottage style homes can have vertical board-and-batten, shingle walls, gable roofs, balconies, small porches, and bay windows. Our cottage floor plans include cozy one- or two-story cabins and vacation homes.
There are many different styles available including: unfinished, country, rustic, cottage, or log cabin cottages. Each style can be decorated with a specific décor that will give your modular cabin cottage a unique feel. Rustic furniture may fit better at a cabin in the woods and cottage furniture in a cabin at the beach.
Typically with just one bedroom, our cottage plans offer great options for empty-nest boomers. Today we offer higher end style guest-houses. Depending on the local zoning requirements, boomers can build a modular cabin cottage in the backyard and rent their home for additional income or move into the backyard of a loved one’s house. With easy living accommodated through the use of universal design, our home plans are just more livable.
