Field & Stream will showcase its new Dream Cabin in the February issue hitting newsstands on January 23.
The Dream Cabin, is ideal for sportsmen or family vacations, and is the culmination of a year-long collaboration between Field & Stream readers, online visitors and Northeastern Log Homes, a leading manufacturer of log homes and cabins (http://www.northeasternlog.com) headquartered in Groton, VT.
The Field & Stream Dream Cabin was built at Sterling Ridge Resort in Jeffersonville, Vermont from a kit manufactured by Northeastern Log Homes. The complete kits are now being made available to the public and include logs that are pre-cut and numbered, interior walls and stairs, roofing, windows and doors, decking and other components. The kits retail for $106,000 says the manufacturer and will be part of the company's Premiere Dream Cabin Series. For free literature and details on this or smaller cabin kits, telephone 800-624-2797, or visit http://www.northeasternlog.com.
"This project has given us the opportunity to design a Dream Cabin model that appeals to customers who want more amenities and comfortable living space for six adults or two families," says Gary Jordan, who heads the Northeastern Log Homes design team. The Dream Cabin offers 1,800 square feet of living space and daylight basement to accommodates additional guests and storage of ATVs, boats and snowmobiles.
To develop the new Dream Cabin design, thousands of outdoorsmen weighed in with the features they would most like to see in their own dream cabin through the magazine's website, http://www.fieldandstream.com.
