How about living in a Log Cabin?

Living in a log cabin is certainly a romantic idea besides its also a symbol of humbleness. Did you know Seven United States Presidents were born in log cabins, including Abraham Lincoln,Andrew Jackson, and James Buchanan.

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." "Log cabin" generally denotes a simple one- or 1½-story structure, somewhat impermanent, and less finished or less architecturally sophisticated. 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.

Historically log construction has its roots in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. Although their origin is uncertain, the first log structures were probably built in Northern Europe in the Bronze Age(about 3500 BC)
