About Us

DIY cabins was created with the "weekend warriors" of home builders in mind. The "Do-it-yourself 'ers." A lot of people share the same dream of that little cabin in the woods, but for many, the practicality of hiring a contractor to build their dream is impractical. After years of designing log homes and seeing the costs associated with turn key building, and after seeing more and more people becoming hands on in the building process, we decided to create a site dedicated to facilitate a growing need.

So we came up with a number of plans that met certain requirements:

Ease of construction

Maximizes space

Easy to understand

Price conscious




Based on a home builder's experience, these are plans that a person can build themselves with only minimal outside help. Of course, if you want someone to build a cabin for you, these are great low cost designs that can be built quickly by an experienced builder. And quick building translates to lower cost.

DIY Cabins was created by Dennis Kelvie, the owner of 3D Visual Studios. He has over 15 years experience designing log homes and has seen hundreds of his homes built across the country. Recognized as one of the country's leading authorities on modern log and timber home design, Dennis has designed award-winning plans that can be found all over the world. His attention to detail, accuracy, understanding of construction techniques, and top notch customer service have all put Dennis at the forefront of the industry at both the national and international levels.
