This 20×30 cabin is a large post and beam design that comes with options to create a functional space to suit a variety of needs. Interior walls are non-load bearing, which allows for flexibility in the floor plan during initial construction as well as subsequent remodels. The plans selected below showcase many of the layout features that people look for in homes later in life. We have compiled a group of plans that showcase how we might approach the design of your custom floor plan. As you browse through our web site, you will discover the natural beauty and quality of Appalachian Log and Timber Homes and all of our Log Home Floor Plans.

After getting the floor joist project done (it took my wife and I 3 days), we insulated the floor with 6” kraft-faced fiberglass insulation. The unfinished interior allows for creativity and personalization; interior walls are non-load bearing, making the standard floor plans open to customization.

Since most of the living space is on the first floor, heat is allowed to rise up to the rafters, keeping the main floor cooler. I am going to install my loft joists on top of the walls, lay plywood down, then build my roof rafters with gusset plate on the loft platform and tilt them up. Then I will bolt the rafters to my loft joists and those will by the crosstie for the A-frames. Like all of our cabin building kits, the 20×30 design features locally sourced, beefy 8×8 hemlock timber frame construction with true mortise and tenon joinery.
It was good to have gotten something to walk around on soon after the A-frame fiasco. The outdoorsman cabin plan features a cost-effective design that is ideal for use as a fishing/hunting camp or just for weekend fun. I’ve downloaded the plans for the 8×16 solar and I’ve made a few changes to windows etc. A rustic 3 bedrooms/2 bath mountain cabin with a family room loft and fine craftsman detailing. See if any of these catch your eye and work with our design team to create your own timber frame cottage.
Plans in our Rustic Luxury series include design concepts with features that might include two master suites, private libraries, wine cellars, multiple garages, or expansive areas for entertaining. For siding, I recommend wall planks because they look so much better from the inside of your cabin. If you need to splice two timbers together for the 20-foot cabin sides, that’s fine. Inside, an A-Frame floor plan is typically one-and-a-half stories, with a cozy half-story, loft, or storage area at the peak of the home.
