Shed That Looks And Acts Like a Small Log Cabin

I had to make a post for you on this small log cabin that’s actually an Amish built shed.

The log cabin/shed has residential style windows that are single pane and is easily large enough to live in.

You can listen to Steven Barry while he gives you a full video tour (inside and out) of the shed cabin.

It has a really sharp pitch so you get plenty of room up there in the loft. Probably enough for most of you to stand in and enjoy a full sized bedroom.

The porch has pressure treated wood already so it’s protected and finished. Ceiling in the porch is tongue and groove pine.

Inside you’ll find 2 x 6 studs and it’s all unfinished so you can put in your own insulation then follow it up with interior wall paneling (tongue and groove pine!!) or drywall.

Inside it’s 14 by 30 so there is plenty of room. And no ladder loft… There are real stairs. Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments.

Pricing runs from $4,000 to $50,000 depending on size. I’m not sure how much this particular one runs but it has already been sold and will be used in a horse farm (it’s probably sitting there now!).

    I’m sure it’s a lovely shed but the video made me so seasick I couldn’t really tell.

    I think Kent had done a post awhile back on someone who’d purchased an Amish shed and then he’d finished it out to live in. It was gorgeous, even the exposed electrical conduit had been done by a pro who took pains to make it look great. Nice to see that there are still some out there who do good work and take justified pride in it.

  • I’ll have to try and find that post on Kent’s site. Not sure if I’ve seen that one. Talk to you later David

    Hey Alex. If you haven’t found it yet at Kent’s blog, then under ‘categories’ click on ‘log construction’, the post is called ‘Jon’s cabin in Wisconsin’ dated 19 October 2010. Built by a company called ‘Cabins to Go’, an Amish company. They used squared off logs in this case as opposed to the round ones of your post. Lot of good pictures, 57 comments. Wow.
