If you’ve ever driven past or stayed in a KOA Kampground you might have seen one of these log cabins by Prairie Kraft Specialties. This company is an approved supplier to KOA Kampgrounds and maker of the Kamping Kabins.
They sell a variety of cabin kits starting at about $15,000 for a simple 12′ x 12′ cabin without plumbing. They also have larger cabins with bathrooms and kitchens. Unlike some manufactured homes and kits these really have log walls. Some of the larger models have insulation packages as an option for more extreme climates. If you have special lot considerations their engineering and drafting department may be able to help you alter the design to meet your needs. If you’re a campground owner they can even help you with financing.
If the log cabin aesthetic is your thing this may be a great way to get a log home of your own. Prairie Kraft Specialties definitely has a lot of experience building these kits so one would assume they have refined the construction and assembly process to make them easy to buy and build. They also seem to be one of the more popular log cabin kits on the market. I bet with a little digging online you could even find people, like campground owners, that have assembled these kits themselves and get some first hand opinions before you buy one yourself.
