Amish log cabins in Pennsylvania

Construction and carpentry are primary industries in many Amish communities in Pennsylvania.  Amish craftsmen create both pre-built cabins and log homes built on site to customer specifications.  Pre-assembled cabins are a popular option for those in search of a hunting cabin, summer cabin, or backyard getway structure.  In addition, some sellers of Amish cabins promote rental cabins, which can offer a financially rewarding investment as a lodging option.

Amish workers may build log cabins and other outdoor buildings at home businesses located on Amish properties, or may be hired as employees of non-Amish-owned cabin and log home companies.  In their own shops, Amish workers typically use modern tools which are powered not by electricity, but which are adapted to run on hydraulic or pneumatic power.

When Amish construction crews and carpenters work off-site in Pennsylvania and other locations, they typically utilize the public-grid power available at the owner’s home. This is not permissible in all Amish communities but is the norm in numerous Pennsylvania Amish communities, including the Lancaster County settlement.

Pre-assembled Amish-built log cabins can offer an affordable secondary residence or even a primary home.  Since they are built off-site, the homeowner avoids the bulk of the mess and potential delays associated with on-site construction. Some companies offer both standard models of log cabins, as well as building log homes on a custom basis.

Amish communities in PA

For over 250 years, Amish have made their home in the Keystone State.  While traditionally considered an agrarian people, the past few decades have seen a decline in farming and a corresponding increase in entrepreneurship among Amish (both in PA and nationwide) including manufacturing of wood products and structures such as cabins.

Amish cabin builders and retailers can be found in locations across Pennsylvania.  While some Amish companies provide log homes and cabins directly, in other cases Amish craftsmen may work for a non-Amish owned company.
