Inside the cabin, you'll see that the entire interior is finished with real wood too. Including the wooden cabinets in the kitchen area. You can add in a full kitchen including a small gas stove and a regular fridge so you can have the comforts of home while you're staying in your cabin.

Building your own log cabin is a great alternative to having a log home builder handcraft one for you. This way you can get in on some of the building which is always very rewarding. You will also save a lot of money on labour too. The main difference between a handcrafted log cabin and manufactured log cabins like this one is that the handcrafted log cabin materials are all shaped by hand using special traditional tools that have been used for log home building for centuries. The manufactured log cabins and homes are built out of materials that have been shaped using machines. This makes all of the materials very uniform, as you can see in the photos of the Hickory Hill log cabin. The handcrafted materials will be less uniform and will vary in size, shape and colour. Neither way of building a log cabin is better than the other; it just depends on the individual and what they like.
