Gingerbread House Pattern – Log Cabin

Snow Covered Log Cabin Gingerbread House Plan

Welcome Christmas and Winter by building a cozy, tabletop log cabin with gingerbread. This gingerbread house plan requires no blueprints to print and cut, just like a log cabin does not require any. All you need is logs to build this one.

Log Cabin Gingerbread House

1.  Start with a 6-inch log in back, two 2-inch logs in front.  Top with 6-inch logs on sides, letting ends extend.  Continue building using spacers at inner edges of 2-inch logs.

2.  Fourth layer uses 6-inch logs all around.  Add 3 spacers across doorway; then top with 6-inch logs across front and back.

3. Using spacers and 3-1/2 and 2 inch logs, build up gables on front and back of cabin. Place a spacer on top of each gable.

4.  Ice and sugar roof pieces, ice top logs and spacers.  Set roof in place.

 

Pattern

Use the following pattern to cut the roof and if desired, front and back ends.
