Log cabins have been around since ancient times. According to archaeological evidence, they started showing up in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia around 3500 BC, but it’s very possible they go back much farther than that.
As far as North American history goes, it’s widely believed we have Scandinavian immigrants to thank for the original log cabins. Most historians agree it was the Swedish settlers who first started building log cabin homes in Delaware on the East Coast in the 1630s. It took some time, but with the help of the American Revolution, when the 13 Colonies were united against the British and they started to share each other’s customs, log cabin building started to catch on.
After the Revolution, the log cabin really started to become a symbol for life on the frontier. As American settlers migrated westward in search of their fortune, they found forests and logs were plentiful and log cabins were so easy to build. The only materials required were logs and an axe or a saw. It only took one man about two weeks to build one, less if he had a helping hand. The log cabin fit so perfectly into the American landscape - as if it had always been there! Log cabins have a rich history that is seeing a major revival these days. As more and more people are getting back to the basics, we’re seeing a resurgence in the log cabin like never before! And now, after thousands of years of experience, we are now able to build these structures in all kinds of creative and efficient ways that our ancestors would have been proud of.
