Log Home Plans
Here are some plans that represent a sample of the homes we have designed and built over the years.
One of them might be just what you are looking for, but more likely, you will find one to use as a starting point and adapt it to suit your own needs. In fact some of the plans shown here were developed just that way! You should also have a look at our Planning and Pricing page.

The Fundy Cottage - 880 sq. ft.
This is a cute little cottage, at home on the seashore or in a woodland setting. The Greatroom/Kitchen features a cathedral ceiling with exposed log roof beams, while the Bedroom/Bathroom area has a more economical flat ceiling. A large covered porch provides for a sheltered place to watch the whales ... or the loons, as the case may be. This little house would make a retirement home for anyone looking to escape from the work involved in maintaining a larger home.
The Aylesford Lake - 1000 sq. ft.
Designed as a cottage, this would also make a cosy little home. Featuring an exposed log truss, the loft area can fit one large bedroom with ensuite, or one large and one smaller bedroom. The space downstairs gives lots of room for entertaining and for everyday living.
The Melrose - 1131 sq. ft.
This is an economical design, suitable for a cottage or small home. On a full basement, more rooms can be finished downstairs. On a slab or crawl space, another bedroom could be fitted into the main floor. The roof is done conventionally for economy, but a log roof structure could also be included. the large front porch gives this house a real "country living" look.
The Fancy Lake - 1200 sq. ft. (on main floor)
This could be a lovely retirement home or, with a walkout basement, a family home with three or more bedrooms. The Greatroom features a cathedral ceiling with log roof truss and beams, while the remainder of the home has a more economical conventional roof system.
The Berwick - 1530 sq. ft.
This home features an open living area, with a cathedral ceiling above. The loft can be closed in as a bedroom or left open to the room below. A shed dormer on the back would allow for a large ensuite in the loft. As with all of our plans, the layout can be changed to suit your needs or site considerations.
The Shelburne - 1740 sq. ft.
This house is designed to take advantage of a site with a view. The great room, dining room and master bedroom all have large windows and access to deck areas. More bedrooms can be added in a finished, walk-out basement. The master bedroom is luxurious, with a cathedral ceiling, large ensuite and walk-in closet.
The Roseway II - 1788 sq. ft.
This plan developed as an option for our Roseway I design below. The main floor is unchanged, but the second floor is modified to give one large bedroom with ensuite. The area over the downstairs bedroom wing is built using an economical conventional truss system. This area has a flat ceiling with no log joists, but they could be added as an option if desired. The loss of the bedroom above is compensated for by the savings achieved in the simplified roof design.
The Roseway I - 2000 sq. ft.
The Roseway I is an open design with four good sized bedrooms, spacious entry way and cathedral ceiling in the greatroom. Exposed log trusses and roofbeams are features of this house, along with the open log stairs and railings. The downstairs bedrooms are located in their own wing, tucked away from the kitchen/dining/living room areas. Log floor joists are featured over this area. Two large bedrooms (or one bedroom and a den), each with ensuite, are located on the second floor. This house has lots of space for those who like to entertain or just enjoy quiet times at home.
The Harbourville - 3070 sq. ft. (incl. garage)
Here's a large home featuring an efficient kitchen adjacent to a bright and spacious sunroom. The great room is open to the log truss and roof beams above. A log stairway leads to two loft bedrooms. The original version of this home has a separate apartment above the garage, but the plan can be modified to include this space in the main house. Other options would be to use a lower pitch roof on the garage and eliminate the expense of finishing extra rooms above it, or even to take the garage off altogether. As with all our plans, there is no problem in adapting to suit your needs or building site.
The Pleasant River - 3200 sq. ft.
This home has loads of room for a large family. With three bedrooms upstairs, the downstairs bedroom wing could be utilized as family room with room left over for a small office. There’s plenty of space in the kitchen and dining rooms, and a large laundry room as well. Upstairs there’s a cozy loft area for reading or quiet conversation.
The North Shore - 4700 sq. ft.
This large home was originally built as a family lodge where all the grown-up kids could come with their families. It could also serve as a first home for a large family or for folks who like lots of company. The games room is a nice feature, with room for a pool table, ping pong and more. Space is the name of the game in the Dining and Great Rooms, and the kitchen has room for lots of helpers with that turkey dinner. As with all our plans, this design could be altered and re-sized to suit your particular needs.
