PAN ABODE CEDAR HOMES This is a log cabin "sort of" in my opinion, mostly looks like a real log cabin but the logs are milled quite differently. They also have a section featuring tiny cabins and tiny house building kits. Yes, they have cabins under 1000 SF and they ship worldwide. Picture on the right is of their: "Alaska Tundra 3 Lam Phoenix Timber Cabin #606".
►A refined modern Log Home! The D-Log building system is an exceptionally strong, easy to assemble log building system utilizing horizontally stacked kiln-dried laminated Western Red Cedar D-Logs made of 4-1x laminations and 1-2x lamination which is the side that is milled to a D-Log profile. The result is a 5 Lam x8 (6x8) Cedar D-Log engineered to create a solid timber wall able to withstand earthquakes and hurricane-strength winds. The Phoenix Timber wall segments are adjoined together by Douglas Fir vertical columns. Our D-Log system uses the same building technology as our Phoenix System, with the exterior face using a rounded D-Log profile. The Phoenix Timber Building System is an advanced corner-post ("Phoenix Column") system that utilizes vertical Douglas Fir dado'd columns to stabilize the kiln-dried wall timbers from differential settlement which is a big problem with conventional log construction systems. The D-Log building system gives you the look of a log home on the exterior, but without the leaking, settling, and problematic chinking of a log home. The dimensional stability of engineered laminated D-Logs are far superior to solid logs in that the reversed orientation of wood grain in the laminated logs resist the woods internal stress that causes twisting, cracks, and bowing. The interior features flat walls of beautiful Western Red Cedar that are easily cared for with no round protrusions of logs for dust to buildup. The most refined Log Home in the world.◄
PACIFIC LOG HOMES This business is located in Canada. They have some cabin plans with less than 1000 SF floor space. They sound to me like they have a good construction system. See Below for details. Their Plan #534 is a small cabin with a total of 794 SF (Main Floor & Loft).
►PACIFIC LOG HOMES LTD. has been in business since 1976 and is still under it's original ownership, shipping log homes across Canada, throughout the USA, Europe, and to Asia. We custom build to meet each customer's individual lifestyle and requirements. Our thirty acre pre-building site is located in Lone Butte, B.C. Canada. We take pride in the fact that all our homes are built at our own plant, and that we do not sublet log work out to other "would-be" builders. Five permanently mounted electric 82 FT tower cranes provide for efficient handling of the logs. The cranes enable us to work on ten or twelve buildings at one time. The full length spruce, pine, fir or cedar logs we use are a minimum of 12in mean diameter. They are winter cut, air dried, and hand peeled. Each log is scribed to fit the log below and a "wedge" notch is used on the corners.
Our wedge notch has been found to be far superior to the "saddle" (or, round) notch used by most hand-hewn log builders. The wedge notch provides for an extremely tight draft and water-resistant notch. Traditionally, log homes have been built by wilderness people whose main concerns were ease of construction, ready availability of materials, and protection from the weather. Today, people who build with logs enjoy the same benefits, and many more. For today, the log home stands as a classic example of traditional construction combined with every desirable aspect of modern design. Far removed from the one-room wilderness log cabin, your contemporary log home will feature large bathrooms, vaulted ceilings, skylights, hexagon-shaped living rooms, massive kitchens - and any other modern design feature that you choose to incorporate. At Pacific Log Homes, we are builders of permanent homes. And, we build your home to meet your particular design requirements. This Web Site has been prepared to illustrate the scope and variety of our log home construction, and to present you with ideas that you can literally build on, as you prepare a sketch of the home you envision. Included in our services is an estimation based on your sketch - without charge or obligation! For modern cost and energy-conscious people, log home construction offers a number of unique benefits. Logs are basically natural insulators against both heat in summer and cold in winter - and combined with between-log linings of fibreglass, your log home will be unsurpassed in terms of energy conservation. In terms of home maintenance, once original treating of logs is completed (to ensure permanence of natural colour), there is virtually no upkeep required. If your thoughts have been turning toward the living dream of a natural log home, discuss your ideas with our designers, estimators, and craftsmen. You will learn that log home construction costs no more than conventional construction of a custom home, lasts generations longer and provides you with surroundings so rich and warm that you will see your log home as a natural choice. For now and for many years to come.◄
WALDEN 19TH CENTURY ANTIQUE LOG HOMES Now pay attention because this is a slightly different kind of business here. This business based in the state of Tennessee, uses reclaimed logs from old log cabins to build it's homes. This is their specialty. Picture on the right is of their cabin called: "Chandler", a cabin built using the original logs, etc.
►For twenty years, we have combing the southeast for original log cabins. Often these old log homes have been covered up in siding, hiding the beautiful logs but also offering protection from the elements. We have developed sources for finding these gems, and have perfected the art of building brand new log homes, some with modern floor plans, some re-erected exactly "as found", in a way that would fool the pioneers that built them. Almost all of the antique log homes we build are custom structures, built to our customers' specifications. Although the antique log homes we salvage were all well built, they are small by today's standards. Most people today prefer a house plan that is more suitable to modern-day lifestyles. That is why we modify the antique structures by cutting off the old notches, re-notching, and reconfiguring to accommodate any house plan that our customers come up with. This reconfiguring the beautiful, one-of-a-kind log homes is done very carefully and methodically. And the end result is so close to the original, even the pioneers who built our homes would have a difficult time discerning between their work and ours. We dismantle these original log homes, then ship the logs back to our site in Chattanooga. We then incorporate the antique logs into your plan for your new log home. If you don't have a house plan, we will be happy to help you design your log home based on your tastes, budget, lifestyle and your building site. Once your log home is built to your specifications on our site in Chattanooga, we number the logs, take them down and ship them to your site wherever it may be. We will then send out an on-site advisor to oversee the reassembly of the log home. Then you or your contractor will finish out the log home according to your plans. All of our logs that we use were hand-hewn over one hundred years ago. They were all hewn with a foot adz, which is a long-handled axe with the blade positioned much like a garden hoe. There are several advantages these reclaimed timbers have over new logs. One is the fact that these logs moved and creaked and twisted, natural properties of all wood as it settles, at least ninety years ago. Another advantage these logs have is that they were actually virgin timbers. Our forefathers chose the biggest, strongest trees for their homesteads, and after the "softness" was hewn from them, the dense heartwood was, and is, as hard as a rock and naturally resistant to insects and rot.◄
TOMAHAWK LOG AND COUNTRY HOMES Their smallest cabin i could find was their 1104 SF model called: "The Wintergreen". But, they can probably build a small cabin if you so desire. Picture on the right is of their "Bird Lake" model.

►Affordable Log Home Kits For Residences, Cottages and Cabins from Vancouver Island BC. Imagine . . . Your own beautiful, eco friendly, energy efficient, custom log home kit for about the same price as traditional frame construction.

The square timbers allow efficient production and construction and avoid many challenges faced by building with round logs. The resulting product is a traditional log home, unpretentious and rustic, yet full of charm and appeal. Ecolog homes combine traditional custom log home construction and design techniques with modern applications, producing a home that will stand the test of time. The final product is delivered in form of a log home package. Ecolog Homes represent a new style of log homes: These buildings are solid wood log homes, that differ from traditional round log homes or timber frame structures in several ways: The solid walls are constructed from 8x8 inch square timbers, not from round logs. Square timbers are much easier to produce and work with . . . This makes Ecolog homes very affordable. The "Ecolog Look" is derived from the combination of the alternating 2 inch insulation and 8 inch timbers, giving Ecolog log buildings a very unique and attractive, natural appearance. Ecolog log home packages are available from: Western Hemlock, Douglas Fir or Western Red Cedar. All our timbers are harvested from sustainable second growth forests on Vancouver Island.

WHOLESALE LOGS OF AMERICA What they do here is specialize in logs cut to different shapes and accessories for building your log cabin. I don't think they have organized "Kits" available, however you could probably present them with a "Material List" and they could fill the order.

►For nearly 30 years, Edgewood has been designing and building exceptional custom log homes for a discriminating clientele. As you do your research on log home builders, you should know that there are distinct differences between companies' service levels, engineering, and building approach. At Edgewood, we build just a few select projects a year and we manage and execute your entire project ourselves – from design, to materials package specification and production, to onsite assembly.
This integrated approach is totally unique in the log construction industry. So, why do we do things this way? Because it is the only way to be absolutely sure that your project is a complete success. Developing your custom log home from concept through completion frees the design and construction process from the "Manufacturing Mindset", which primarily concerns itself with production goals and process repetition. An Edgewood log home is truly a custom home, built to your vision - not pieces and parts from previous projects put together on a new home site. Our architects and craftsmen are encouraged to "Push The Envelope" on creativity and ingenuity throughout the design and construction process, because this is the best way to deliver a one-of-a-kind project for each and every client we work with. After three decades and more than eight hundred homes completed, Edgewood has never been called back to a job for re-work of any kind. We owe this record to an unfailing dedication to the highest construction standards through every phase of your project. Yes, this takes effort, but your proud ownership of an Edgewood home is our ultimate goal. Whether you're building your dream home or the ultimate vacation destination for your family and friends, Edgewood offers you design vision, unprecedented features, proprietary construction technology, and the flexibility to flawlessly execute your new home from start to finish . . . Wherever you are building.◄
COZY LOG CABIN Here is a very well done video and information featuring a man who built a small log cabin with no previous building experience and with a limited budget of no more than $500.00. The cabin is 10ft x 10ft. The roof section is 11ft x 16ft. It has 52 logs, approximately 25 inches in circumference (Approximately 8in in diameter) at the base. He left them with the bark on. It only cost him $15 worth of gas, and $30 worth of oil to build the entire cabin with his chainsaw. The floor is set on 9 patio stones, with 2X4's for support, and 2¼ inch thick rough-cut Poplar floor boards on top. He made square notches in the logs, which he found to be a sturdy way to fit the logs together.
►This simple, but cozy bush cabin was constructed in my spare time, and was completed in 8 months. My youth group, and several people from my church were a huge help. I wouldn't have been able to complete it so quickly without them. Of course there are things that I can, and could have done, to make sure this cabin lasts 100+ years:
- The logs could have been debarked before I used them.
- In the future I can jack the cabin up and put it on footings so that the logs will be kept off the ground.
- In the future I can put a metal roof on, to replace the tarp.
So why didn't I just do the above 3 things right away? I was under a strict time & budget constraint. I only had $500 and I had exactly 8 months to complete the cabin (it's a long story). Although I had a lot of people who helped on various occasions, I worked alone most of the time, often in temperatures of -30℉, with only a chainsaw, an axe, and my arms. Although I had to take a couple of shortcuts (because of my constraints), I do not regret any decision I made in the cabin's construction. If I chose to build the cabin exactly the way I wanted it to be built, I wouldn't have been able to build it at all. In the future, I plan to build a bigger log home. And when I do, I will be sure to take the time to build the cabin exactly the way it needs to be built!◄

SOF ROD log home gasket is installed into the lateral groove and corner notch of each log. Our standard corner notch used is the compression fit saddle notch. Once the log walls are complete, the roof system is constructed and erected. The roof support system consists of posts, purlins, ridge poles and log trusses.

LEGENDARY LOGCRAFTERS It is a recommendation by the fact that this business will build smaller cabins for those people that want a smaller home. But, on their website all the log homes are of the large size type, probably over 2000 SF, i am guessing.
►Our main headquarters are in Collingwood, Ontario Canada, at the foot of the picturesque Blue Mountain and just north of Toronto. Since 1992, the company has been dedicated to building the finest handcrafted log homes available today. With hundreds of homes built across North America and several in Asia, we take genuine pride in all of our projects - whether building a cozy 600 SF cabin or a 10,000 SF lodge. The grace and inspirational beauty of our log home designs have been recognized through out countless articles and magazines including Log Home Living "Top 10 Floor Plans". Our philosophy has always been "start small and think big". We originally began by handcrafting authentic Scandinavian full scribe structures. We quickly realized the beauty and popularity of other styles of log and timber construction and started producing dovetail log homes and timber frame homes. In 1996, we introduced the most innovative roof panel system available, "Synergy Roof Panels", specifically designed for log and timber frame homes. At the turn of the century, we developed one of our greatest innovations, the super economical "Kwik-Kit" series. Theses home packages offer very practical designs with extremely quick installations. Legendary Logcrafters has a firm belief in evolving with the log home industry to ensure we offer our clients the best product at the best value. We are a very dynamic company that has developed many unique products and offer a wide variety of log styles.

HOCHSTETLER MILLING Yeah, they have a couple of very nice looking models of under 1000 SF smaller log cabins in their inventory. I always like to see what is available in the smaller sizes. I like log cabin companies who are willing to build smaller cabins. This business linked to here is based in Ohio, but will probably build your home at most any location. Picture on the right is of their: "Vacationer 432 SF, 1 Bedroom / 1 Bath, log cabin".
►Nestled in the rolling hills of north central Ohio, prospective log home buyers will find a log home manufacturer that is known for transforming dreams into reality. In fact, Hochstetler Milling has been manufacturing some of the finest log homes – and fulfilling many dreams - since 1986. At Hochstetler, you can choose among Hochstetler's 25 existing plans or work with the company's in-house design professionals to modify any existing plan or design your very own custom log home. Levi Hochstetler founded Hochstetler Milling to make the look and warmth of a classic log home affordable to those dreaming of the log home lifestyle. And at Hochstetler, the company has masterfully blended "affordability" with traditional fine craftsmanship – the Amish trademark for generations. In fact, Hochstetler Milling uses only the finest quality materials, mills every log from the "heartwood" or "core" of the tree, and never substitutes conventional lumber for authentic timbers. So how do we do this? Hochstetler Milling uses the latest, most efficient milling equipment and operations to reduce labor and processing costs. And when buying from Hochstetler Milling, you are buying "mill direct", thereby eliminating the middleman and related costs. Now with the second generation joining the company, Hochstetler Milling is poised to continue fulfilling the dream of a quality, affordable log home lifestyle to hundreds – if not thousands – of satisfied homeowners throughout Ohio, the Midwest, and even around the world. Stop by or call us, today. We would love the opportunity to share our story with you!◄
