About Amish Cabins
Amish cabins come in a range of styles and models. Amish have a tradition of craftsmanship that spans woodworking, residential and commercial construction, and construction of outdoor structures. Amish crews both create full size log homes as well as provide log cabins and other varieties of cabins. Styles of Amish-crafted cabins include:
- Log Cabins
- Log Homes
- Hunter’s Cabins
Portable Amish-built cabins are typically built off-site and transported to the buyer’s location. Alternatively, Amish construction crews can be hired to build a full-sized cabin on your property. Many Amish businesses construct accessory and related pieces including sheds, storage buildings, mini-barns, garages, outhouses, gazebos, pergolas and more.
Amish Log Cabin Kits
An alternative to purchasing a ready-constructed cabin is to buy a log cabin in kit form. Necessary parts are included, while the buyer is responsible for construction and installation, including providing appropriate tools. If you have the necessary construction skills, Amish log cabin kits can be a money-saving alternative to buying a ready-made log cabin. Log cabin kits typically provide a few thousand dollars in savings over ready-made cabins.
