If you’re looking to buy a cabin and aren’t having any luck finding what you want on the market, you always have the option of purchasing a log cabin kit.
Log cabin kits generally come with everything needed to build the structure of a cabin. Some cabins are super small and can be put together by you and a few friends, while others are much larger and may call for an experienced crew to assemble.
No matter your budget or the size of the cabin you’re looking for – you likely can find a kit for it.
Here are eight companies that sell log cabin kits that you should check out.
What’s Included in A Log Cabin Kit?
In general, a log cabin kit includes the following:
- Windows and Doors
- Roofing Material
- The Log Wall System
Some kits may also include subfloor, but not all do.
What log cabin kits don’t generally include are flooring, any interior finishes, and the foundation.
Before you purchase a log cabin kit, you need to be fully aware of the total costs you’ll incur. You’ll need to factor in electrical, plumbing, heating, foundation work, flooring, cabinets, light fixtures, showers, and the cost of labor.
The cabin kit itself will only be a portion of what you need to spend for a complete, liveable home.

Coventry Log Homes
Coventry Log Homes is based out of New Hampshire. They offer a wide variety of log home packages.
One thing I appreciate about their website is they offer a construction calculator. This estimates how much you can spend on a log cabin kit based on how much in total you want to pay for a home. It also breaks down various other costs like foundation work, plumbing, electrical, and more.
When I plugged in $150,000 as the total I wanted to spend, the calculator gave me a budget of around $50,000 for purchasing a log cabin kit.
