Timber Frame Cabin Kits
The first thing you notice when you walk into a Logangate Timber Frame Home is the warmth and beauty of the Douglas Fir Ceilings. We source our Douglas Fir Timbers and Tongue and Groove material from British Columbia. It is the heart and soul of a Timber Frame home and we will not compromise with lessor grade material. Our cabin kits come with 4×8 Rafters, surfaced all four sides, pre-cut, sanded, and numbered to correspond with the blueprints. On top of that, we pride ourselves on one of the very few Timber Home companies east of the Mississippi that uses 2×6 Douglas Fir tongue and groove. The 2×6 is so strong it becomes our structural roof deck.
The Prefab in Prefab cabin homes simply means that the walls are pre-built in our factory controlled environment with the windows already installed. Rafters are cut to length. Our insulated roof panels are also pre-cutto size as well as pitch cut. All hardware is included, and your Cabin Kit is ready to be delivered to your job site for quick erection.
Another unique feature of our Timber frame cabins is a fully exposed loft floor system. We use the same 4×8 timbers as your floor joist and the same 2×6 douglas fir tongue and groove as your flooring. The result is when you are standing on the first floor and look up at the ceiling you will see the same beautiful Douglas Fir giving you a consistent feel throughout the prefab cabin home.
Our prefab cabin homes produce tremendous volume. The post and beam design do not have any attics, therefore, your ceilings go all the way to the roof. Typically living rooms are designed as clerestory space resulting in 20’ plus heights at the peak. Similarly, the upstairs bedrooms are fully vaulted adding to the open feel of the design. In our Timber cabin kits, we typically design windows in your vaulted spaces that go all the way to the roof. This gives you a full visual of your gorgeous view.
When building your Timber Frame Cabin, you need to be able to design your floor plan that will meet your needs. Logangate timber cabin kits allows you a great deal of flexibility. Our cabin plans start at either 24’ or 28’ deep and then work in 4’ increments, ie 24×36, 40, 44 etc. Because of the post and beam designs, we have very few load-bearing points. This feature allows you to work with our in house design team to customize the floor plan any way you like. First, start out with how much square footage you want in total. Second, do you have any viewpoints that you want to highlight from inside the home. Third, how many bedrooms and baths will you want. These design elements can all be incorporated into a design that you have always wanted. We have in house design team to work with you and produce in AutoCAD full set of floor plans, elevations, and construction set used for permitting. We take care of it all, no need to incur the extra costs of an architect.
