Cabin Customization Ideas

custom cabin building ideas

As custom cabin builders, every cabin we build can be customized to fit your needs. From the size of the building right down to the finish options, these cabins can be made your own. The possibilities are certainly not limited to the things that we have done. Many times the best custom log cabin building ideas come from the customer who will be enjoying the cabin. As professional log cabin home builders, we will do our best to incorporate every customization you can think of to your cabin, allowing you to put your personal touch into it and make the cabin that best fits your needs.

If you have ideas for what you’re looking for that’s great! Our custom cabin builders can help you out by drawing that up for you and making sure that everything lays out correctly before construction begins. However, if you’re not sure exactly what you want to do or how to lay out your custom log cabin, give us a call at (610) 593-4556. We have been through the process with many customers and would love to work with you.

We have found that sometimes by spending a few minutes on the phone we can get an idea of what you are looking for and draw up some rough ideas. For many customers it is easier to look at some drawings and ideas and say “yes I like that”, “no that doesn’t work” or “could we move this here”, rather than creating your custom log cabin from scratch. We will go back and forth making changes to your plans until we have a finished plan that you are completely satisfied with.

Here are some of the things that other customers have done, so you can get a feel for the possibilities and perhaps stir up some ideas in your own mind. We can put together a quote for you with any or all of the options you can think of and each part of the quote will be itemized so you can see how it breaks down.

We offer several flooring choices in our log cabin homes from Tongue and Groove Yellow Pine, and Hickory to wood grain linoleum. If you would prefer another type of flooring in your custom log cabin, let us know and we may be able to make that happen.

With so many options you have the opportunity to take a cabin style and create the “wilderness retreat” that fits all you needs. Look through all of the options we have to offer, for recreational cabins and more, and be creative! If there are ideas you have, let us know and we’ll work to incorporate them into your custom log cabin design. If you don’t want to be creative, choose one of the cabins we have designed. As custom cabin builders, we know what has worked for many others and have built log cabin plans that are popular and efficient with space.

Zook Cabins Helpful Hint:

Julie says: If you are planning on having long stays at the cabin (more than 1-2 weeks at a time) you may want to consider the larger custom kitchen. The more your cabin feels like home, the more you will enjoy your time there.
