Log cabins are built to last. In the bygone days of the pioneer period, people took a lot of time to build their cabin and planned every detail that it was comprised of. Plans were made on location based on conserving heat, foundations were laid using native rock found in the area, and logs were cut on the property and joined by a clay mixture. These days log cabins might be made using a kit where materials are provided by a log cabin manufacturer. Some are comprised of pieces that are already assembled and a plan that includes attaching the pieces together.
