Do It Yourself Cabin

After the logs were raised and the roof was on Larry and Donna Newton’s cabin in rural Kentucky, they took over completion of the home they’d long dreamed about.

The house is beautiful in every season, and the couple shared their photos of Christmas in the cabin as well as interior and exterior pictures showing their handiwork.


Moving into a new home is exciting, but it’s a lot of hard work. Plan early for packing and if necessary storing your household contents between moves. We’ve added some tips for choosing the right storage for your family.

The Wilder Custom Home

The 2,480 SF Wilder custom log home floor plan includes a two bedrooms, each with a private bath, a central hall design with a large entrance foyer that opens into great room and a separate dining and kitchen area.

A mudroom with a half-bath, storage and a laundry closet opens onto a full-length front porch that extends slightly around the side of the house. This covered extension connects a breezeway to a two-car garage.

Off the dining room to the back of the house is a screened-in porch that opens onto a deck.

The loft is one large room that can be used as an extra bedroom, a den, an office or a hobby room that is open to the great room below.

Like all Honest Abe floor plans, this plan can be built as a log, timber frame or hybrid home.
