Luxury Log Cabins- Seeing is Believing

When sketches and flat floor plans are helpful, there is nothing like seeing photos of a finished luxury log cabin. Photos show depth and color, allowing the visitor to stroll through a home without ever visiting it in person. Below are some photos of one of our newest plans, the El Paso log home design. This log cabin has become a new favorite with customers.  The exterior is attractive, but the finished interior photos tell the story.

Original Cowboy Log Home Plan

The use of customization of log home floor plans allows the flexibility between homes while still adhering to the basic log home design.  This plan started out as the simple Cowboy plan with a first floor with half loft. Through the improved floor plan this home grew into the El Paso plan.

Let’s start on the outside. The log size here is a 10 inch diameter. The covered porch also had matching support posts and header beams. An attached log garage is visible to the left of the photo. The floor plan is wider than the Cowboy. And a covered side porch and open deck has been added.

El Paso Log Home Exterior

Moving inside we see the inside, we see this plan really shine. The logs are stained a lighter color on the interior, which I think is much more desirable than the darker exterior color. The log support posts and beam for the loft meet in the center of the photo. The owners chose 1×10 pine tongue and groove to finish the interior of the gable end. Decorative metal is installed on the ceiling of the kitchen.

Our next photo shows the dining area of the great room in more detail.  The wood ceiling is 1×6 knotty pine tongue and groove. A lantern styled chandelier hangs over the dining table. A sliding glass wooden door opens onto the rear deck.

Next we get a closer look at the fireplace. It is a corner stone fireplace with a wood burning unit inside. I like the wall sconce high in the gable end. I also see track lighting peaking out from behind the log joist.

And one more great room photo, looking into the kitchen. I love the choice of cabinets. Very attractive! The stainless steel appliances and hardwood floors are important elements that tie this kitchen together.

Moving on to the bedroom on the first floor. This is where careful inspection shows the largeness of the logs. Drywall ceilings are ok, but I prefer 1×6 pine tongue and groove on the ceilings to help preserve the log home feel.

Moving on to the loft, the master suite is located upstairs.  Part of the loft is walled off for the closets down the left hand side.

This plan differs slightly from our published El Paso plan as the bedroom was added to the loft.

And finally we see here the El Paso loft. The owners have chosen to locate a home office and sitting room in this area of this luxury log home. Luxury log homes don’t have to be huge, they just have to contain the elements you crave for your own log home.

Cowboy Log Homes


Any projected costs, cost estimates, material costs, and estimated construction/ building costs, are only the opinion of Cowboy Log Homes and are drawn from our experience. Every home is custom tailored to meet our individual client's wants and desires. The construction of a log or timber home is based on two primary costs: material provided by the log home company and construction costs contracted with Cowboy Log Homes as the builder or another builder of the customer's choice. Final costs are obtained and contracted with each respectively. Cowboy Log Homes is simply the "glue" that helps bring these two together to provide a final culmination of a customer's project. * Please note photos and elevations may differ some from accompanying floor plans.
