A log cabin is a house built from logs. It is a fairly simple type of
log house. A distinction should be drawn between the traditional
meanings of "log cabin" and "log house." Historically most "log
cabins" were a simple one- or 1½-story structures, somewhat
impermanent, and less finished or less architecturally sophisticated
than a proper log house. A "log cabin" was usually constructed with
round rather than hewn, or hand-worked, logs, and often it was the
first generation home building erected quickly for frontier shelter.
When cabins were built with the intention of applying siding, the
logs were usually hewed on the outside to facilitate the application
of the siding. When logs were hewed on the inside as well, they
were often covered with a variety of materials, ranging from plaster
over lath to wallpaper..
