A Log Cabin Tiny Home is a home that is under 400 square feet and is built to look like a log cabin. And while technically a tiny home is less than 400 square feet, today the term is used much more loosely and can include anything from a renovated school bus to any small house, like a park model home.

With the cost of living and home prices on the rise, the purchase of a “normal” home is financially out of reach for many. So people are moving more toward tiny homes and to the minimalist lifestyle. Not only does this offer more flexibility and financial freedom, but some of the cabin tiny houses are log cabins on wheels, making them the ideal solution for the adventure loving.

But small or tiny cabins are not just for the surfing crowd and thrill seekers. A tiny home cabin makes for a lovely vacation spot in the mountains, or simply an extra guest room. They also make for a great short-term investment opportunity as a vacation rental through airbnb or VRBO

Park Model Cabins As Tiny Homes

While park model homes are actually built and registered as recreational vehicles under the ANSI A119.5 Code for recreational park trailers, they are a great option for anyone interested in a temporary housing solution, or wishing for your own cabin in the mountains. They don’t require a foundation, and only need the basic utility hookups that an RV would use. And the best part is that Park Model prices are quite affordable.

FAQ About Log Cabin Tiny Homes

How Much Does A Tiny House Log Cabin Cost?

There are a number of factors that affect the cost of tiny home cabins. This includes the size you choose for your tiny home log cabin, whether or not it’s built on a foundation or it’s a log cabin on wheels, and of course, the style and amenities you choose. The average price for a cabin tiny house is between $30,000 and $60,000, but of course, this will vary depending on a lot of factors.

Is It Cheaper To Buy Or Build A Tiny House?

The question of whether to buy or build really comes down to your personal preference and your construction skill level. While the upfront cost of building your own tiny home cabin or installing a kit is generally significantly lower, the extra costs associated with doing it yourself, like buying the finish out material and your own time, will usually equal and sometimes exceed the cost of buying a prefab or modular building.

Ready for the Cabin Life?

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”

― Henry David Thoreau
