Need A Smaller Cabin?small log cabin in the woods

Loving the outdoors and appreciating quiet serenity is a love all log home owners share. Often, people just want to escape the busy city life for only a weekend and enjoy nature as they explore it. They want to be able to wake up and see the mountains. On the other hand, they don’t want to spend lots of money on a big cabin for no reason. Fortunately, there exists plenty of small cabins options. Think about it, you don’t need space when you’re not there and you don’t need all that much when you are a smaller log cabin could be exactly what you’ve been looking for. So, why should you go for a small cabin?

Less Construction Saves Time and Money

A small log cabin will not need a lot of equipment or materials. You only need a couple of full sized logs for the whole cabin. Having to buy less materials will of course be an avenue for saving money. Furthermore, a small log cabin offers you the opportunity to take on the project by yourself if that’s something that you’re interested in. Whether you do it, get family’s help, or pay a contractor, you’ll still be saving money in the grand scheme because you just have less that you need built.

A small cabin will also save you money in the sense that you will not need to buy a massive piece of land just to accommodate your home. You only need a small portion for the small cabin, leaving more room for nature of whatever else you may have in mind for your property. In addition, it takes a lot less time to build a small cabin. Less time is needed to physically put all of the parts together, while more attention can be paid to ensure everything is done perfectly. You just don’t quite get the quality or speed with a larger cabin.

Security

We are always wanting peace of mind when it comes to the security of our homes. It is unfortunate that a lot of large homes are targets for theft. Everyone feels better when they’re in a safe place. With a small cabin, you can easily install posted signs, security signs and security cameras such as trail cameras. There is less ground to cover. With the mountains also comes the fear of bears and other large animals, it’ll be easier to bear-proof a smaller cabin when the time comes.

Less space to keep clean

A small cabin can of course be cleaned far faster than a larger one. You can divide the job up and get it done very quickly. A large cabin needs more time to be cleaned because of the sheer amount of space, and it’s a lot harder to divide it up into tasks and conquer it that way. In the end, you may find that some places never get the chance to be cleaned, but that won’t be the case in your small cabin.

Spending more time outdoorsWooden ceiling in a small cabin

As we mentioned, log cabin owners are just looking to enjoy nature and relax. Unfortunately, a large cabin can make you get so comfortable that you forget about the outdoors. On the other hand, a small cabin means that you spend more time outside, or at least closer to it. Not that the cabin is uncomfortable, but because you want to explore and the outside is right there looking back at you.

Nothing is wrong with having a small log cabin. They are perfect if you are looking to get away for a reasonable price. Log Home Builders can help you with construction of your small log cabin.
