The River Cabin

When you think of cabins, big, round logs come to mind, but this cabin is made of something special. Each course of Lincoln Block that makes up walls of the structure is up-cycled sustainably sourced Douglas Fir lumber, providing a full time home for three people. They are more than comfortable with the space and they even added drywall for a great finish on the inside to make it feel like a traditional home. After living here for a few years, they reported overall heating bills 3.5 times lower than their previous dwelling of the same size.

Lincoln Block’s Review

A Great Cabin With A Pleasant View

5 / 5 Stars

Small footprint housing made easy! It was incredible watching this building go up in only a few days with your two man crew. Not to mention it’s the perfect spot for a cabin, we are more impressed with the end result than we can articulate. We believe that people who use Lincoln Block are capable of building virtually anything they put their minds to, and you have proven that to be true beyond a shadow of a doubt. Thank you both for dreaming so big!

P.S. We love the way the Wood Defender stain turned out!
