As immigrants from these areas brought their skills to Colonial America, it was only natural that logs from the abundant forest would become a primary source of shelter. These original pioneer homes were usually one room buildings with a few if any windows. Their great attraction was that an ordinary person could construct them with a few tools and minimal training. These humble "log cabins" became an expression of early American architecture and a part of the American experience.
