How to Customize a Small Cabin

Even with a condensed floor plan, you can do plenty with your living space. Experts who have built cabins ranging from 300 to 1,200 square feet say the most important factor is how you’ll use it.

“You should ask yourself, ‘Is this a place I’m going to want to live in later? Is this a place the kids might want to move to when they get older?’ If so, you need to take that into consideration,” says Brad Letzig, design department manager at Neville Log Homes. “The worst thing to do is to design the cabin a certain way, and then find out later it’s not quite big enough, or that it’s more than you needed.”
