A cornerstone of intentional living, Cabin style home designs are fashioned to blend beautifully with their natural surroundings, reflect your value for the environment and offer purposeful measures to become removed from day-to-day life. Whether designed for a primary residence or a vacation home, Cabin House Plans offer the ultimate in a relaxed lifestyle, uncomplicated living and getting back to “Mother Nature.”


Cabin Style Home Designs

While Cabin House Plans are often associated with log cabins, cabins come in many different styles, sizes and shapes but what they typically have in common are a casual lifestyle, generous outdoor living space, some type of covered porch and oftentimes, open floor plans for entertaining and family living. These homes are varied in style and composition - from small to large, from rustic exteriors to simple construction, they typically include some type of natural, organic exterior ornamentation but no matter the style, Cabin House Plans are designed to offer plenty of charm and character. Increasingly popular, Cabin House Plans are not about sacrifice in size or amenities but instead offer innovative ideas designed to lead to a simpler, yet fuller, way of life. Easily maintained, these home designs offer maximum livability, comfort and an uncomplicated way of life; however, modern conveniences and elegant design features are often found within the home’s interior. Whether a larger permanent residence or small weekend getaway for hunting, fishing or other outdoor adventure, Cabin House Plans are designed for a specific way of life found in the beauty of nature and outdoor living experiences.


Small Cabin House Plans

Oftentimes, Cabin homes are thought to be recreational second homes for weekend getaways or short term vacation living. This type of usage typically results in smaller floor plan choices for ease of living and maintenance. America’s Best House Plans offers an outstanding assortment of small Cabin plans intended for those specifically interested in pulling up to the home, “dumping” a small amount of luggage and assorted other gear and “hitting” the trails, the lake or other outdoor adventures. These smaller footprint plans may feature one or one-and-a-half-story floor plans with cozy family and friend gathering spots; warming fireplaces, both on the interior and exterior, and sleeping arrangements to include bunk rooms or overhead lofts. These small Cabin House Plans maximize the use of efficient space, feature versatile multi-purpose rooms and highlight the correlation between indoor and outdoor entertaining space allowing for a spacious quality to the floor plan.


Large Cabin House Plans

While a large majority of the homes in this collection offer smaller footprints, there are many that are considered luxurious dwellings with unparalleled attention to detail, the finest choice of materials and amenities, and include spacious, well laid-out floor plans for executive style living. Adapting to modern times, these homes reflect the mood and needs of today’s family; multi-level floor plans with sweeping panoramic views of the outdoors, elaborate and expansive outdoor space that feature fireplaces, kitchens and living space, vaulted multi-tiered ceilings and massive natural stone fireplaces. These sundrenched floor plans are perfect for grand scale entertaining where open common rooms casually flow one into the other as well as onto the outdoor space offering the height of luxurious accommodations.


Cabin House Plans with Lofts

Vertical space becomes increasingly important when addressing limited property lot dimensions and a modern design concept would be to incorporate an overhead loft space into the home’s interior. These lofts can be utilized as sleeping quarters for overnight family members and guests or as storage space. Often accompanied by cathedral or vaulted ceilings, these overhead lofts create maximum space and availability of additional sleeping, relaxing or storage space. Adding a spiral staircase or moveable ladder and you automatically create an efficient means of adding space without subtracting from the original square footage of the interior. An overhead loft can also be configured as a master suite wholly devoted to the comfort of the homeowners; thereby, increasing the main floor’s use as an open living and entertaining area.


Cabin House Plans with Wraparound Porches

A hallmark of Cabin House Plans, wraparound porches, are welcoming and inviting as outdoor greeting space for family and friends, relaxing space for reading and as a coveted spot to gather at night. Cabin House Plans are designed to beautifully blend with their natural surroundings and covered porches offer the ultimate escape when relaxing in the summer breeze, catching the warm morning sun or sipping iced tea while protected from the heat of the day. Not only do wraparound porches offer shelter from the weather but multiple property vantage points can be accessed to enjoy the scenery from the cover of this extended outdoor living space no matter the season or weather. There is just something so appealing and charming about extended outdoor living spaces; the comfort, the ease and simple living in natural surroundings is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday living.

Cabin House Plans offer an opportunity to return to simpler times; a renewed interest in all things uniquely American, a rustic style of living whether a small or large footprint, handsome detailing and a welcome change of lifestyle pace. America’s Best House Plans would be honored and appreciative of your interest in our extensive collection of Cabin House Plans.
