The Ultimate Log Cabin Home Floor Plan & Layout

September 24, 2013

A modern log cabin home floor plan has come a long way from the ‘Little House On The Prairie’ days. From 10-car garages and private lakefront amenities to two-story great rooms and wraparound decks, a perfect luxury log cabin home layout will need plenty of space indoors and out plus all of the high-end amenities finishes you’d expect from any high-end home. Each room will need big, bright windows, plenty of room to stretch out and relax and, if possible, plenty of space between one another to ensure privacy and solace.

A log cabin home floor plan should be big and expansive with wood details inside and out in order to maintain that rustic feel. The more square footage the better (at least 4,000 sf), since a retreat should allow for plenty of personal space for all inhabitants. Multiple en-suite bathrooms are a must. And, because it’s a log cabin that’s likely nestled in the woods, nothing says ‘country retreat’ like a Jacuzzi and a fieldstone wood-burning fireplace. Since you’ll be far off the beaten path, the kitchen should be chef-grade with granite countertops, plenty of custom cabinets and stainless steel appliances. A walk-in pantry is also be a convenient touch to the log cabin home layout.

As your cabin will most likely be the getaway of many family vacations, the log cabin floor plan should have extra living space for the occasional additional guests such as a finished basement with a den, extra bathroom and bedroom and walkout access to decks and the surrounding property.

In terms of amenities, a log cabin home layout shouldn’t make you feel like you’ve sacrificed any of the creature comforts you’ve left behind in the city. A built-in computer nook is a nice modern add-on that will help to make you feel connected. Many luxury log cabins even feature a master control hub where you can manage everything from the security system, water-treatment system and the air conditioner.

When it comes to a log cabin home floor plan, one of the most important elements actually hasn’t a thing to do with the interior at all – it’s the location and its surroundings – and the floor plan should be open with big windows and plenty of opportunities to catch a glimpse of picturesque and bucolic views. Look for multiple decks and plenty of access to them (via French Doors if possible) from all over the house. Whether it’s on a lakefront or nestled at the base of a majestic mountain range, or, both, the country charm should extend beyond its borders to truly make it feel like an idyllic country getaway, a retreat from the ordinary and everything a luxury log cabin is meant to be.
