Styles of Cabins for Every Budget & Location

Everyone can relate to the fact that sometimes, too many options can actually be a bad thing. You feel over-stimulated, over-informed — and frankly, overwhelmed! We understand and we want to help simplify things for you. From small and rustic cabins to dramatic log home mansions, we build different styles of cabins that match everyone’s tastes.

Use this guide to help you navigate through our 5 most popular log home styles and find your perfect log home today.


We’re taking single-level living to a whole new level. Allow us to introduce you to the Allegheny model: a customer-favorite 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom log home with TONS of spare space. The floor plan practically knows no end as it features a 2-car garage, laundry room and spacious kitchen. This style of cabin stands out as it is one of the few models to feature a large screened in porch. Plus, the traditional log home style invokes the rustic, frontier feel like few others.

Blue Ridge

This model is a favorite for people who love to spend their afternoons on the back of an ATV or deep in the woods. The single level Blue Ridge style of cabin gives you more of what matters most — more time outdoors. With a large front porch for enjoying your morning coffee and an oversized 2-car garage for storing vehicles and yard toys, you’re equipped with everything you need (and everything you want) in a log cabin home. The 1,700 sq. ft., 3 wonderful bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms give you all the room you need for everyone that will be along for the adventure.

Creek Side

A true cabin charmer, the Creek Side log home style is one house that will make you feel like you’re at home — whether it’s serving as a vacation spot or as year-round living. Choosing smaller styles of cabins means we’ve carefully thought out and planned every inch of the 1,100 sq. ft. home. This affordable 2 bedrooms, 2 bathroom home even comes with a bonus second floor loft space. See more small log cabin plans that you can build today!

Fox Run

Our #1 best-selling model for those who appreciate the beauty of the details, our Fox Run model log home is the one for you! Crafted with intersecting pine logs and a steep pitched roof, homeowners can’t get enough of the style found with this 2,300 sq. ft. home. The Fox Run model boasts a standard 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom layout that leaves room for other fun additions like a private screened-in porch and a beautiful master bathroom. If you want a quiet getaway that looks cozy and quaint — yet is big on style and space — look no further!


This is a spacious 3.5 bathroom, 4 bedroom luxurious log home. Measuring in at 3,000 sq. ft. means there is more than enough room for family time together in the kitchen or den, while also giving everyone their own ample space to relax from the day. The contemporary style and the front-and-center great room gives this home a winning look — inside and out.

Things to Consider Before Buying Your Log Home

Just like any other major purchase, there are numerous other factors to consider when finding you dream cabin. Here are a few things we always recommend discussing with us when looking over our styles of cabins:

  • Wood type: The location and the budget of your project can help determine what wood type will serve you best not only now, but for years to come.
  • Cabin purpose: Whether it’s a hunting lodge, a family vacation spot, or a quiet residency, the purpose your cabin is intended to serve will help you dictate its size and style.
  • Maintenance: Our log homes are built to last as long as ANY other type of home. They will, however, need some maintenance as a result of the unique log home material. To make it easier for our customers, at Gingrich Builders, we sell a wide variety of top-of-the-line log home maintenance products from Sashco.
  • Budget: And of course, the primary factor: the budget. At Gingrich Builders, we always work our hardest to respect your predetermined budget by matching you with log home styles where you are most comfortable.
