Are you considering purchasing a log cabin? If so then you have come to the right place at Ecohome. There are a few things you should think about before buying a log cabin:
You probably already have made your mind up about buying a log cabin. But have you really considered what size cabin you will need? The size of your cabin can simply be determined by the size of your family. If you have a large family with a few kids you should probably buy a cabin that has at least three bedrooms. This will give you and your children enough room to feel comfortable. On the other hand, if it is just you and your spouse living in the cabin, you can safely get by with just one bedroom if you are not planning on having guests to stay regularly.
Another determining factor is cabin use. Many people build a log cabin on their property and use it as a weekend getaway. Others may choose to live in their log homes all year round. If you are using your log cabin only a few times a year then you probably don’t need a large kitchen or more than one bathroom. But if you choose to make your new log cabin your main residence, you may want to include a fully functioning kitchen with all the mod cons and a couple of bathrooms.
Before you start the search for your new log home you will need to consider your budget. Make sure to take note of how much money you owe in credit cards and other loans. Next, you will need to factor in your monthly operating expenses. After you have all your debts and payments accounted for you should subtract them from the wages you bring home. This will give you an idea of how much extra money you can spend on your new log cabin purchase. If you are getting finance for your new log cabin, having a budget will help you figure out what size payment you can be comfortable with.
Finally, you should think about how you are going to put your log cabin together. Some people like to do the work themselves and our log cabin kits are easy to put together.
But you are going to need some tools and of course someone to give you a hand. If you are not the do-it-yourself type and you want to have a log cabin designed, built, and fully installed, you may be interested in our log cabin turnkey services.

Each of these tips will help you find the right cabin for your own personal needs. Not all log cabins are the same, so finding that special one for you is very important.
