$26,150 Pre-Cut Log House Shell. This is The Northwood Log Home
The $44,600 Northwood is a great design for someone looking for a starter and affordable home option. Another one of the lovely log cabin designs from Coventry Log Homes, The Northwood has a nice, simple design that provides all of the necessities for a small family. It has two bedrooms plus a loft that can be used for additional sleeping, office or storage space. There is one bathroom on the main floor, along with the two bedrooms, living room and kitchen areas. There is the option to build the house on a basement foundation, which of course would be extra, but worth it if you wanted more living space. Basements can be great for recreational rooms and cold storage, and finished basements can house more bedrooms. This log cabin has a nice deck on the front of it as well, which makes for some nice lounging space with views. The log cabin designs here are intended for uses as a recreational cabin, but, this model could also make a great, small starter home as well.
The complete log cabin building package you see here, priced at $44,600 includes the floor system, wall system for interior and exterior walls, all windows and doors, and the roof system complete with a metal roof which would be great for those wintery, snowy climates. So in a log cabin building package, all of these materials are delivered right to the building site to be dropped off close to where you will be assembling it. To ensure ease of construction, each of the logs are numbered and labeled when the package is created and they are all created uniformly. There's also an instructional manual which helps you to understand how the house is built, and can help you with any issues that may come up. Think of a larger version of Ikea furniture, and that is sort of like what your log cabin building kit will be like. You can have a look at Coventry Log Homes' free log cabin building planner, which you can find on their website. The planner covers pretty much everything that a potential log home owner may need to know about the building and design process.
