Home Plans for a Dogtrot Log Cabin
How to plan for a future addition when you first build
March 1, 2013
This Appalachian-style log cabin built with square-hewn logs is designed to become a classic dogtrot structure with an optional addition to the original building. It begins as an 817-total-square-foot foursquare log cabin and anticipates the future addition of a 391-square-foot guest cabin at the other end of the large porch. The addition transforms the original cabin into a classic dogtrot with a wonderful breezeway, all sheltered under a continuous roof.

The guest cabin features a loft sleeping area for two that looks down on a bunkroom that also sleeps two. There is a main-floor bathroom and a bedroom with a stone fireplace.
