The Winter Camp Cabin is an excellent example of what a traditional log cabin looks like. This log cabin is reminiscent of the log homes European settlers built when they first arrived in the Americas. These homes were built by the Swedish, who brought the design and concept from Sweden. They made the most of what they had around them and chose to use trees as they are plentiful and can make strong houses that will last a long time. They are also easy to see in the North. The log home and cabin industry has been steadily growing over the years. There are now companies like eLog Homes that offer prefabricated log home kits.

The Winter Camp Cabin log home looks great, is very simple, and has all the space that a small group would require. The cabin measures 960 square feet. It has three bedrooms and two baths. Everything is spread out over the main level. This log cabin exemplifies what it means to build a log cabin. The logs are rounded and not cut into different sizes or shapes. They are hand-peeled and then stacked on top of each other. The notches in the corners allow them to stack perfectly and create strong corners. The house has a wrap-around porch and a front deck that totals 328 square feet. This would create an amazing outdoor space for entertaining and relaxing outside. The space would be brightened by the natural light coming in through the angled roof and the window below at the ceiling level. It is also home to many windows that create a wonderful atmosphere.

eLog Homes has a fantastic website that showcases the cabins they prefabricate and distribute across North America. They handcraft all of their logs from Eastern White Pine, which have been seasoned and dried in the air. Because of its superior quality and consistency, Eastern White Pine is their preferred log. They are stable and have high insulation values. For log home construction, only certain tree types are suitable. Some trees are too bent and weak to be built.
