Log Cabin Style
By Sydni Waters
History of The Log Cabin
This style came about from the American settlers, making it a very plain, less structurally complicated house. These houses are usually made of pine and/or spruce, overlapping the logs of trees to make the walls, corners would be what would secure the logs together by carving out sections where the bottom/top will fit into, without the use of nails. The gaps in between the logs were filled by moss, or with rocks and mud, depending on the time period. The pioneers were the people that started the popularity of the log cabin, when they lived out on the frontier, they didn't have neighbors for miles, so they would have to build their houses with the resources given, usually depending on how wealthy they were. There were many historical figures that lived in a log cabin, like Abraham Lincoln, who actually made his own by himself, Benjamin Banneker, Sue Thomas, and Daniel Boone, being some of them.
About This Style
The living room is filled with light, very big and open and showing mostly wood for the walls, floors, and ceilings, other than the fireplace that can be either big or relatively small.
This room will have plenty of windows, since privacy is usually not an issue, and still has wood as every surface in the room.
Will be right next to the living room, featuring the bright lighting and the wood traveling into the kitchen to still make it very rustic.
