Plans to build a log home can be found on the websites of Mother Earth News, ePlans.com and HomePlans.com. Depending on the size and complexity of the home to be built, the plans can be free or cost thousands of dollars.
For a very simple, rustic log cabin, builders can find free plans in the slideshow in the article by Earl Hardy for Mother Earth News. This model is relatively inexpensive to erect and can be done by someone with basic construction skills and knowledge.
Most of the plans on the other sites require a substantially larger investment and a professional crew of tradesmen to build.
