Best Answer

They could be pretty much any size. Typically they would be something in the area of 20 by 40 feet with a loft. The idea would be to have the longest logs be the length of the home.

The log cabins were built by cowboys and cattlemen at regular intervals. The logs were sawed and packed with mud clay , a roof with a chimney and a blanket for a door , wood for heating and can food kept them from blizzards.

What was the Log Cabin Act?

A log cabin is typically a structure built from wood, similar to a house. They were used as an early form of housing and were typical of frontier settlements. As the name indicates, they are made of logs which are notched at each end and stacked cross-wise to form the walls of each room. The logs might be sawed or chopped a the sides to make them square. The logs were then chinked with clay or mud and windows and doors were cut and framed in. The roofs were often made of split logs or sometimes thatched over a log framework. After saw mills were set up, board siding could be added and roofs could be made of boards and covered with wooden shingles. You can still get them today, they're seeing a resurgance, especially in holiday locations such as the Lake District in the UK. They're also now quite popular in the garden as a way of creating alternative space, such as a games room or music studio.s/
