Log cabin house plan

If you've ever run a quick search online for log cabin house plans, you've probably been overwhelmed by the number of plans out there to choose from. What makes one set of plans better than others? What are the differences, and what should you look for in the different sets of plans? And how can you choose between them? Fortunately, there are answers to all these questions. All floor plans are not created equal; it's important to know what you're looking for when choosing a house plan.

First, you must know what you want. It's easy to get carried away by all the options out there; go into it knowing what you want, and you're less likely to come away with six bedrooms for your family of three. While you might not find yourself in such obvious danger of overbuying, it's still important to think ahead and know what you want before you start looking at log cabin house plans. A log cabin is usually a dream for many years before it becomes a reality; make sure that your dreaming has included practical points such as how many bathrooms you need, how much you plan to store there, and whether or not you want room for guests to stay over with you.

Once you know what you want, look at different plans online. Plans that don't quite match your ideal home can be ignored or, if you prefer, set aside as a backup plan in case you can't find exactly the log cabin house plan you want. Compare practicality as well as prices; make sure that the plan will work well with your setting and the property where you plan to build the house. Examine, if possible, the technical details of the house plan; where, for example, will electric outlets go? What about phone jacks? Plumbing? Are the sinks and toilets, bathroom and kitchen, close together so that you have a minimum of plumbing work, or are they scattered randomly throughout the floorplan? When working with a log cabin, you want to keep plumbing, electricity, etc., as close together as possible. Make sure that's a feature of any floor plan you seriously consider.
