  • 4 min read


Log cabins have long been considered symbols of comfort, security and simplicity. Their timeless charm harkens back to simpler times when life was less complex. Today we explore Winter Camp Cabin, a timeless log cabin design ideal for post-retirement years.

Log Cabins in History: Exploring Their Past

Log cabins hold great historical importance. Originating in Sweden due to an abundance of trees available there for building purposes, log cabin architecture quickly found favor with early settlers who took advantage of its simplicity, durability, and cost-efficiency in America as introduced by Swedish immigrants.
