4 Log Cabin Plans with a Wrap Around Porch

A wrap around porch is the term for an outdoor space (often covered) that is on multiple sides of a home, by wrapping around a corner. A classic feature for both traditional homes and log home architecture, these outdoor spaces provide a huge amount of usable outdoor square footage while looking fantastic. Check out four of our best-loved log cabin plans with a wrap around porch or deck right here:


An all-around beautiful cabin, the Bridgeview features a wrap around porch that is partially open air and partially screened-in. This ensures that you’ll always be able to comfortably enjoy the outdoors from your porch. From a style perspective, the porch is one of the most notable features on this classic cabin style home. With three bedrooms and two and a half baths, the Bridgeview is a fantastic and practical family getaway!

Practical and picturesque, the Royer is one of our most affordable log cabins and is built in the unique chalet style. While it may be more modest in interior square footage, the wrap around deck and porch more than make up for it. The 1,400 square foot interior is the perfect amount of space for a secluded getaway to the woods. Bottom line: this is our recommendation for an affordable log cabin plan with a wrap around porch.

White Oak

This is another one of our log cabin plans with a wrap around porch that is built in a traditional cabin style. Covering two full sides of the home, the porch on the White Oak is one of the biggest we build, making it perfect for entertaining. This home is a standout choice for either your vacation property or a family home — thanks to the detached garage, open interior plan, and the huge porch!

Built around the living room, the Strasburg porch is cozy rather than sprawling — but this home is still a standout choice. The Strasburg provides a close-at-hand outdoor space, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or watching the sunset. While the other log homes on our list may feature larger outdoor spaces, the Strasburg includes the largest interior of any of the four. With all four bedrooms on the top floor, the Strasburg floor plan is similar to many traditional homes — which many people appreciate when living full-time in a log home.

  • 2,330 Sq. Ft.
  • 4 Bedrooms
  • 2.5 Baths
  • Pine Logs

Why to Love a Wrap Around Porch or Deck

The reason we’re profiling log homes with wrap around porches is because they are extremely popular and they provide a huge range of benefits to the homeowners. These are the key reasons why add-ons make sense for log homes:

  • Make the Most of the Outdoors — Since our cabins are often built to enjoy nature, building an expanded space that is out in nature enhances that objective. Many of the homes we’ve built overlook beautiful expanses or are nestled deep in the woods — getting as close to that beauty as possible is one of the best parts of the home.
  • Excellent Areas for Entertaining — While there’s something to be said for a solitary retreat to your log cabin getaway, many people prefer to get away with their family or friends. These large porches make for excellent built-in entertaining spaces.
  • Unique and Luxurious Element — While wrap around porches were once a common element to home building, you don’t see this classic touch very often on new home builds anymore. Since you’re building a log home to be different, it feels right to bring this unique luxury touch to your cabin.
  • All Weather Space — When your vacation plans involve the weather cooperating so you can swim or hike, there’s the risk of a let-down if it rains and you’re stuck inside. However, by having a large and covered outdoor space, you can enjoy reading a book or spending time with family partially outdoors — even if there’s a downpour.
