The New Cabin
Although the traditional concept of a log cabin remains popular, today’s cabins are increasingly venturing into less of a material-based ideal and more of an ambience, location-based structure. We detail new trends in cabin building, as well as ways to update existing cabins to reflect a more modern appeal.

DIGITAL EDITIONS AVAILABLE
With nearly two decades of publication under its belt, Country’s Best Cabins (previously Country’s Best Log Homes) strives to reach a broad audience range by tapping into the cabin “frame of mind.” Each issue highlights the realistic attainability of cabin ownership through attractive, yet accessible, designs and provides prospective cabin owners with the tools they need to achieve their dream, alongside articles that emphasize the lifestyle aspects of such structures. Although financially capable of hiring contractors for such tasks, these readers often prefer to take a hands-on approach to cabin ownership, from mapping out a general design to tackling many of the cabin’s interior finishing details. To do so, they want to know the best products, practices and resources to use to complete their tasks, which they can find in both the editorial features and advertisements in Country’s Best Cabins.
