These small log cabins like the Lugarde Bordeaux log cabin model you see here, offer quite an affordable option for building a cabin. Larger log cabins and log homes can cost quite a lot of money because the quality of logs is so high and they are such a desirable building material. But, when building small log cabins, the materials needed to build the smaller structure will be less, so you can get the high quality of logs, but don't have the hefty price tag of a larger luxury log home.

Small log cabins like the Lugarde Bordeaux are around the size of log cabin we could have seen the first settlers to the Americas living in over the years. The smaller size of the log cabin afforded just enough room for a small family to live happily in, minimizing the space that needed to be heated and was just enough space for their immediate needs. From the 1600s onward, people built these small log cabins out of trees that they found in their immediate environment. This was a matter of survival at this point in history, to build a home so that their families wouldn't freeze in the cold, harsh winters. As time went on, and the people became more and more settled on the land, the log homes began to grow in size and diversify in their uses. In the 1900s people began to use small log cabins as a vacation home, mostly people of high status who could afford the luxury of a vacation home enjoyed their cabins or cottages on the lake.

In the 1950s and 1960s it became more common for people to build a log cabin for recreational purposes and less wealthy people could now afford this luxury. Now, we continue to see log cabins being built for both recreational and permanent living situations and people still look to logs as a cornerstone in the building industry. With many mills operating all over the United States and Canada, logs are one of the most viable renewable resources making them very high on the list of building materials. Logs are also highly regarded because of their incompatible strength and longevity, as well as their built in features like being natural insulators and air filters. Of course the stunning beauty of a log home is undeniable too. These small log cabin packages are wonderful for people who don't need a huge luxury log home, but who would like a little lane way home or an accessory unit on their property.

The Lugarde Bordeaux is a log cabin package that comes with everything that is needed to build this fine little structure and most of the time these log home building kits can be assembled within as little as a weekend of working on it with another person. The uses for these small log cabins are endless. Some people set them up to be an extra room for their home, or a guest suite for when company comes to visit. They are also great to use as a reading room, or as an artist's studio or a music studio on your property. People are also beginning to use them for home offices.
