You can find prefabricated cabins in many sizes, design styles and with customization options. If you’re considering a log cabin build and want to save time and money, a prefab or modular cabin is worth considering.

Prefab vs. Modular Cabins
A prefab cabin is built off-site and shipped to its new location. A modular cabin, one that comes in one or more pieces and is assembled on-site, is a type of prefab cabin. All cabins on our list are modular, although some also come in a kit version. Prefab cabins kits are less expensive than modular prefab cabins and come with all materials, but you must assemble them yourself.
