Log cabin kit homes have come a long way from their humble beginnings. Decades of experience, combined with innovative technologies, have elevated industry standards -- AND the goodwill -- of today's leading log home producers. If you haven't looked at this building option in awhile, you may be pleasantly surprised by what you see!

The enchanting log cabin kit home that follows is from Daniel Boone Log Homes, based in Nashville, Tennessee. A picturesque arrangement of stone, logs, metal, and
board and batten siding
gives "The Davidson" a storybook quality. Though only 1,568 square feet in area on two levels, it features a charming wraparound porch on three sides, making it appear larger. Multi-pane windows with wooden shutters add to its charm and appeal.
Inside, a soaring two story great room further enhances the spacious look and feel of this little gem. The master bed and bath -- complete with dual sinks -- is also located on Level I (below).
Main Level:1,014 sq. ft.
The upper level has two additional bedrooms and a full bath. An open loft area at the top of the stairs overlooks the great room and dining area below.
Upper Level:554 sq. ft.
And if you need more space but do not want to give up the charm and ambiance of a small log cabin, the "Black Bear" from Town & Country Cedar Homes (Petoskey, Michigan) may fill the bill. Despite its compact-looking exterior, it boasts 3,134 square feet of interior living area.
