Log Home Designs

Abraham Lincoln, probably the most famous man ever to live in a log cabin once said “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

...Clever bloke. Planning and design are important in any task. At British Log Cabins we understand the importance of getting the design of your log home right and we will redesign your cabin until you are happy.

We charge a flat fee for initial CAD outline drawings based on a design brief.

Offering a design and build service means that the same team that designs your log cabin or log home, also writes the specification and manages the construction team through to completion. This allows a smooth workflow from the pencil to the axe.


Our drafting and design services are priced at £840 + vat for custom log home plans which will provide you with custom floor plans and elevations. We also offer a 3d rendering service which enables you to get a really good feel for the aesthetic look of the design.

As a part of the construction package British Log Cabins also provide full, detailed building regulations drawings, site plans, SAP assessments and predictive Energy Performance Certificates.

Featured design

This is one of our most recent designs, ‘Chalet 3’. The design brief was to create a cost-effective, energy efficient, 3 bedroom holiday let solution which can easily be specified to a luxury standard.

The building utilises maximum single log lengths, clever service locations and custom engineered details to maximise the cost-effectiveness whilst achieving a high level of luxury and overall wow factor. Being a post and beam log cabin we are able to bulk up insulation levels throughout to create an extremely efficient building.

While clinging on to the bottom line, the design still incorporates beautiful and awe-inspiring natural log work to separate the building from other sub-standard cabins on the market.

Turn-key prices start from £178,000 + footings and services.
