Explore this 272-square-foot log cabin and its unique octagonal pavilion design

We know, we know. This domed structure isn't exactly what comes to mind when you think of a log cabin, but the Toulouse Bertsch Pavilion from Barrett Leisure demonstrates the stunning possibilities that come with trying things a little differently. This 272-square-foot cabin can serve as a guest house, pool house, or even as a tiny permanent home. 
A pavilion is associated with activities for relaxation and entertainment, and this cabin is no different. We are completely enchanted by the precision required to make this octagonal marvel, and the level of craftsmanship and high-quality logs from "Northern European Sustainable Forests" ensures that the Toulouse is durable.

The Toulouse comes pre-fabricated, but there are certain upgrades you can opt into — such as heavy-duty roof shingles and a gutter rain-collecting system — to make your cabin as weatherproof, sustainable, and eco-friendly as possible.
The interior is outfitted with a space-saving spiral staircase that saves space while allowing you to access the upper floor. The open layout allows you the freedom to do whatever you want on either level. 
Here are the floor plans for both the upper and lower levels:
