Now is the perfect time of year to curl up next to a woodstove in a tiny lakeside cabin. Lakefront Log Cabins, located in beautiful Lake Tahoe, offers customized precut cabin kits in several different sizes ranging from 12×16 feet to 18×32 feet. These cabins have been built for weekend getaways, hunting cabins and primary residences.

Lakefront has sent their cabin kits all over the country including Alaska. They are also working with customers in Canada and Panama. Each standard cabin kit is created from fresh milled logs and then precut by Amish craftsmen in Kentucky. The precutting process takes approximately 3-4 weeks to complete. Lakefront will arrange for delivery of the kit, but off-loading, zoning, permits and construction are up to the customer. Prices for the cabins start at $8,960 for the 12×16 foot cabin to $17,425 for the 18×32 foot cabin. They also offer a smaller 10×12 foot cabin. The prices include:

  • All tongue-and-groove white or yellow pine
  • Pressure-treated foundation runners
  • Two insulated Pella windows
  • One steel entry door
  • #1 metal roofing with R11 insulation
  • Three-year warranty on stain with Watershield and UV protectant
  • Caulk, nails, and screws
  • Sub-floor and wood floor
  • P2000 insulation with R27 value

Electrical and plumbing hookups are not available because of the difficulty of including them in the kits.

A loft for each cabin can be added starting at $648 for the 12×16. The lofts include:

  • Tongue-and-groove white or yellow pine
  • Support beams
  • Railing
  • Pre-built ladder
  • Trim

Lakefront Log Cabins also offers several new designs including an extended corner porch model and small, home-sized cabin kits. The home-sized cabin kits are 28 feet wide with a front door on the long side. They also include as standard:

  • All tongue-and-groove white or yellow pine
  • Pressure-treated foundation runners
  • Eight insulated Pella windows
  • Ttwo steel entry doors
  • One rear entry door
  • #1 metal roofing w/R11 insulation
  • Three-year warranty on stain with Watershield and U.V. Protectant
  • Caulk, nails, and screws

When you purchase a cabin kit, you can also get a matching outhouse! The inside of each outhouse is approximately 4×4 feet with dual seats. Buckets are used under the seats for tidy, quick disposal. The price of each outhouse is $925.

    But… in the 3rd-to-last photo, that kitchen clearly DOES have electrical and plumbing hookups. Are the specs for the home-sized cabin different from the smaller ones?

    The electrical and plumbing hookups are not included in the kits, but can be put in after the customer is finished putting the kit together.

    Hi, the company in this article has since switched over to using structural insulated panels (SIPS) and changed their designs somewhat. Our Ashland Kentucky based company, Amish Cabin Company, is in business directly with the original Amish builder in Kentucky who designed and builds the actual cabins shown in many of the photo’s in this article. Call or email us for our best current discounted pricing for a delivered prebuilt fully assembled cabin or cabin kit.
