Handcrafted log cabins make the perfect vacation homes and full-time homes too. A log cabin like this is great to use as a recreational cabin, a guest house on your property or as a storage area. This is a truly off-grid log cabin in the Mission Mountains between Arlee and Seeley Lakes in Montana. The log cabin is for sale along with the 2.5-acre property it’s placed on that borders the north fork of the Jocko River. Not only is the off-grid cabin super quaint and charming, but it’s also surrounded acres of protected land with no restrictive covenants. Perfect for adventurers and those who just want a quiet, peaceful place to call home away from home.
The cabin was custom built with 1,596 square feet of space with Amish handcrafted; custom scribed logs all that were harvested from the property. Much like they used to do in the old days when settlers first came to North America. It’s truly an amazing feat to build a cabin in this traditional way. Better yet, the cabin can be used year round since they suited it for all temperatures. The stunning handcrafted river rock fireplace will keep the home warm and cozy while providing great ambiance. They also have added great details like the hickory cabinets. Also, outside there’s a great barrel sauna, a 12 foot by 28 foot shed with an insulated dog kennel, a 12 foot by 24-foot metal roofed woodshed, and even a guest bunkhouse. What more could you ask for?
The log cabin is all natural, with pretty much no synthetic materials used in the process. Then the woodburning fireplace will be able to use any of the waste that’s left over from the project too making their projects very environmentally friendly. For people wanting a sustainable cabin, off-grid is a great choice, and this is all done for you.
