If you’re dreaming of living in a log cabin, these are the 10 best log cabin kits to look at. There’s something for everyone here: every budget, every size, and every style.
As you research log cabin kits, there’s a few things you’ll want to keep in mind. Every kit and every manufacturer is different.
It’s important to ask questions like the following as you do your research:
- Is the kit customizable?
- Can it be built in the state/region where you want it?
- What comes with the kit?
- What exactly is included in the price of the kit?
- Is shipping included in the price?
- Will you build/install it yourself?
Keep these questions in mind as you go through this list and look at kits. Once you find a kit you like, the next step will be to start talking to the manufacturer to get more information.

Battle Creek has a series of cabins that are all under 1,00 sqft. They are each SO beautiful in their own way. It’s easy to see one of these being your dream home. We especially love the high-lofted plans (probably because they’re the most similar we’ve seen to our cabin 🙂 )

Frontier Log Homes
Hand Peeled, Full Round Logs
We love frontier log homes because they keep the old fashioned spirit of log cabin living: they hand peel every log using a drawknife and then notch it by hand using a hammer. They only use full, round logs for beautiful homes. Each log is unique, and because of this, each of their kits feels like it was made just for your own dream home. Kits range from under 1,500 sqft to over 3,500 sqft.
Amish Cabin Co.
Amish Cabin Co makes cabins on wheels – they are all RV style log cabins. Built in an Amish factory in Kentucky, the quality of these homes is beautiful. These are a small, budget-friendly option without sacrificing quality and beautiful wood.
