Historically, most log houses were simple structures that were somewhat impermanent, and less finished or less architecturally sophisticated than a typical house. It was usually constructed with round, hewn, or hand-worked logs, and often was the first generation home building erected quickly for frontier shelter. Later, the log cabin style became highly stylized and was used for rural retreats and vacation homes.
