Take A Peek At This Oakbrook Log Home

The Oakbrook log house is a great example of a mid-sized home that would be perfect for a full-time home or a vacation cabin. When looking at log house designs, it's easy to get overwhelmed with all of the amazing designs out there. So it helps to keep some things in mind that will help narrow it down for you. First of all, you're going to want to figure out how many bedrooms you want in your log house. If you're going to be living in the home full-time, you'll want the appropriate number of bedrooms that reflects how many family members you have living in your home. So if you have two children a three bedroom home would be great so that each child could have their own room. If you're building a log cabin that you're only going to be visiting occasionally, it's not as important that each child has their own room, so you can usually go a little smaller with the floor plan. Plus, usually, when you're camping, there's typically some element of roughing it, so it doesn't really matter all that much. The other thing to consider is how many bathrooms you'll need to suit your family's needs.

Again, in a cabin, there can be fewer bathrooms, but think about how much easier it is to get ready or to live day to day life when you have more than just one bathroom. The Oakbrook log house design is from Honest Abe Log Homes' Legacy Collection, and the house you see here was built from that floor plan, but modified to work for the family it was built for. The original plan has 1,590 square feet of space with 2 floors. There are 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms and the master bedroom has some nice privacy up on the second floor of the home with its own ensuite bathroom. Entering into the home from the nice porch space into the living room area that's open to the kitchen and the dining room. It's always nice to have an open concept living space as it creates a better flow in the home overall. The stone fireplace in the living room is a great addition and a must-have for any log house or cabin. The vaulted ceilings are especially nice as well, and add a level of luxury to an otherwise fairly simple log house design.

The nice thing about this log house design is the loft space which is shown to be used as a loft bedroom area. But it could also be used as an office area or even a craft room or a games room. The options are endless, and you can make any changes to any log house designs you see in the Honest Abe Log Homes collection.
