Log cabin kit
many of us to snuggle
down into the inviting atmosphere of warm, timber logs and gingerbread
Are you channeling Grizzly Adams, perhaps? It's amazing how a TV show from way back can stay with us for years afterward.
Whether you're captivated by the small log homes of a TV show of years ago or the possibility of a picture perfect, snow-covered facade in winter, you're in good company for sure!
There are many choices when considering small log cabin houses. Your main decision is to figure out whether the log cabin kits option is the right one for your needs.
What's the difference between prefab and kit homes?
Let's clarify how log cabin kit homes and prefab log homes are supplied and how they differ:
Prefab Log Homes: Each piece of a prefabricated home is manufactured off the home site, delivered complete to your land and pieced together to completion/lock up by the same company. A prefab supplier will look into the council permits and building requirements for your land prior to delivery and installation. Often, a prefab home pricing will include fittings and fixtures and is supplied ready to move straight in.
Small Log Cabin Kit Homes: With a kit home, pieces are manufactured off-site, delivered to your land and left for completion by you/your building team. So essentially, a kit home is more leg work for you as you need to organise a builder, obtain permits and the like.
Do-It-Yourself, Prefab or Kit Home?
Choosing the right option for you will depend on your
skill level when working on an exacting task such as building a log
- D.I.Y. and build from scratch : Cut the logs, smooth and treat them, grab a plan and start building. I won't go into detail here about this process as there is a fully detailed website owned by Ian Campbell, an expert on building DIY Log homes:
- Order from a supplier of prefab log homes manufactured in an off-site factory, and have it delivered and put together in a matter of days or weeks.
- Find a supplier of log cabin kit homes and stitch it all together, perhaps with a builder's help or flying solo in a more do-it-yourself fashion.
