What's the Difference Between Log Cabins and Log Homes?

Log Cabin

A log cabin is a structure constructed by stacking whole logs on top of each other to form interior and exterior walls. It has a rustic appearance and is commonly used as a hunting camp. However, it is unsuitable for year-round living as it typically lacks a thermostatically controlled heat source, often relying on a non-thermostatically controlled stove.

A log home is constructed using modern, conventional techniques, with half or flat log siding added to both the exterior and interior walls to mimic the appearance of a log cabin. This allows for year-round living, with the primary heat source being regulated by a thermostat.

Log cabins, as described above, are not in our appetite; however, we allow log homes with stacked logs that are larger than 1,500 square feet.
