Stone House Woodworks Log Cabin

Guest Post by Dave Stonehouse

Dave Stonehouse from Stonehouse Woodworks in Golden, BC. Here are some pictures of my 16 x 20 log shell that I built last winter. The shell is complete and currently for sale.

I have begun building my first “littlefoot” log cabin. The sub floor is built, it will be 8ft 4″ x 12ft 6″. That size was chosen because we can build 104 sq ft without a building permit around here so that squeeks just under. It is designed to be moved in two pieces, floor walls and loft as one with a steep prefabed roof that gets set on top like a hat being the second piece. It is going to have a steep 18/12 pitch roof that will give standing room at the peak even though it is only 8ft 4″ wide. There will be a dormer on the one side of the roof.

I am currently building a full sized log house for a client so I am working on the “Littlefoot” as I find time. I am hoping to have it done by late fall.

I have a new website at

On the site I talk about my plans for mini log cabins, know as Littlefoot Log Homes.

I’ve attached a couple of photos of the 16 x 20 for sale. It is made of large douglas fir, with a 13 x 16 foot loft. I’m asking $16,000 for the shell.

I love log cabins. They are my favorite. Your work is just beautiful!

How much would it cost to ship one of those to the UK ? I think you have created/built something very simple and beautiful and very different to what are referred to as log cabins in the United Kingdom. The littlefoot looks like a real authentic pioneer/frontier cabin and the grain and rings of those logs looks amazing. nice share.

You might think about chinking it with cob. It would be warmer than normal chinking.
