Check out this downsizer's dream, from the open-plan living room to the huge tub

A log cabin can often be a wise choice for those looking to downsize. Not only do the well-proportioned floor plans give you everything you could need, but they are also often smaller spaces that don't require the constant maintenance of a larger family home.
A log cabin kit is an affordable solution to downsizing when compared to the cost of condominiums and apartments. Once you make the choice to live in a log home, you'll discover the relaxing tempo of living a simpler life.

The Kootenay II by Australian firm Appalachian is a fantastic log cabin for those looking to downsize. The home has 915 square feet (85 square meters) of internal living space, with a generous ground-floor bedroom and a huge loft area. The cozy cabin benefits from 280 square feet (26 square meters) of decking for a relaxing, peaceful outdoors life.
The open-plan living room is finished with a gorgeous tone of wood, exhibiting intricate detailing and features along the floors, walls and ceiling. The attractive wood-burning stove is a timeless solution to heating this well-insulated cabin.
The kitchen and dining area have a spacious feel yet don't dominate the cozy footprint of the house. The delightful all-wood theme continues in this room, where the shelving and cabinetry give the impression of a quaint, country kitchen.​
You may have noticed a common theme throughout this house — space. Each room has plenty of air to breathe, including the bathroom, which can even house a large corner tub. The white tiling offsets with the wood paneling beautifully.​
The Kootenay II has a large loft space that is open to the main living area below, providing a constant circulation of fresh air. The loft makes a spacious master bedroom, or it could easily be customized into an office or a second sitting room.​
This well-proportioned cabin has it all, including plenty of terrace space for true outdoors living.
