So often, while dreaming of a log cabin, cabin lovers start planning out their design. Many often sketch out an ideal layout and make changes to it over the years as they ponder their dream home. Sometimes what happens is the perfect land and the perfect floor plan don't match up as dreamily as we hope. That is no problem for Caribou Creek draftsmen! We can adjust your floor plan to fit on your site.
