These were smaller than our current structures as they were only one room and the floor was made of ground beneath our feet. Now it may seem like these buildings are silly to make now, but the people who used to build them lived a prosperous life.
Log Cabin Life
Living in these log cabins out in the woods allowed the pioneers to be self-sufficient. After all they built their homes in the middle of forests where they were surrounded by practically endless supplies. If they wanted food, they simply could have went out and searched for berries or vegetation.
Or if they were looking for dinner, they would only need to find a creek or river and fish. Then at night, they wouldn’t need natural gas to heat their home, they would just build their own fireplace and burn wood to heat the house.
They would also use that fire to help cook the fish they caught earlier in the day. Also, if they weather were to turn, they would be able to insulate the space in between logs to help keep out heat and cold.
