Log Cabins for Less has a few kits listed on eBay at very good prices. My favorite is the Thompson Ridge Log Cabin Kit. They are made in Greenville TN, but they will ship the kit anywhere within 300 miles away. All of the materials fit on one lat bed tractor trailer.

The kit includes nearly everything you need, but it is not a prefab cabin or one of the kits that comes pre-cut and numbered. You have to have enough building knowledge to cut the logs to fit.

It doesn’t say on eBay, but the website says that kits come with double hung, double tilt low-e glass windows framed in your choice of vinyl or wood.

You can upgrade hand hewn logs. I think this is a photo of the hand hewn logs.  I’m sure they can be more specific, if you ask them.

My log cabin has the same thing. It looks just like the rest of the logs, but it is put on as siding in this area.

Here is the floor plan. It has a total of 1251 square feet, 936 square feet downstairs with a 315 square foot loft.

Two Bedrooms and Full Bath Downstairs
Two Bedrooms and Full Bath Downstairs

There are two bedrooms downstairs. It looks like they are both over 12’ wide, wide enough for a king sized bed. The master bedroom has a good sized closet with double bifold doors.

The bath includes space for a washer and dryer. I like that they put it behind doors! More storage, less clutter.

Upstairs Office and Second Bath
Upstairs Office and Second Bath

Upstairs there is another bathroom and what they call an office. The plan has doors so that you can easily reach the storage in the eaves.

Double Sliding Barn Doors

They put double sliding barn doors to give the loft privacy.

This photo demonstrates how you can tuck six people into the office sleeping area. If you are going to use this log cabin as a Vacation Rental, just think how many you can say it sleeps!
