Today’s hunter is a man who likes to do things himself. He changes the oil in his truck because it is “his” truck, not Jiffy Lube’s. A hunter is a man’s man, self-reliant and capable of handling any task thrown his way. Thus, it should surprise no one that when a hunter looks to build his hunting cabin in the woods he will gather his own tools and supplies to make his hunting paradise a reality. What is interesting is that so-called hunting cabins are no longer without modern amenities. What was once a simple piece of shelter from the elements is now a place to relax, watch a game and swap stories about the one that got away.
As the hunter begins to create his new cabin he would be wise to research the various plans that are out there. Even though the true hunter is independent and will build his own cabin, he needs to make sure he has plans that are up to code and that will give him the comfort he desires after a good day in the woods. The traditional hunter will look to log home house plans because there is a nostalgic feel of being in a log cabin in the forest.
A hunter raised in the comforts of the city may look to small luxury home plans for his hunting retreat.
It may sound silly to use the word “luxury” when discussing a place in the woods for hunters, but even hunters enjoy many of the modern conveniences found in today’s homes. Plus, a good hunter is self-reliant, so not even building a plush home in the woods will be too difficult.
Some hunters will want a home that is part of the West. They will turn to bungalow style house plans because they love the idea of sitting on the front porch to watch the sunset as a perfect day of hunting comes to a close. Then, they will be able to move into a spacious living room to share a beer before heading to bed in one of the comfortable bedrooms. The hunter who values a cabin where he and his friends can comfortably socialize is definitely going to be swinging a hammer to build one of these original American homes.
