This one is pretty much gone but a lot of these are still standing. Many have been covered with siding so you don't know what you're looking at but people often still live in them. A friend of mine has a business where he restores those old cabins to the original state. Some of these cabins are hundreds of years old. It was a solid design that offered protecting and durability. My ancestors lived in cabins like this.

Love it!

I really enjoy history and nostalgic things/construction like this. You look at something like this or large prominent homes from decades gone by and you envision how it must have been in it's heyday; when they were vibrant and alive with people.

I try to get images of old run down barns because things such as that are deteriorating quickly and once gone they are lost to history. Most younger people today have no idea of such things....

Here's what a restored cabin looks like. It's about what they would have looked like when first built. My friend restores cabins like this.

Hi Jeff_56

Just saw your log cabin, so I thought I'd share a picture of one we took at the Omagh American Folk Park in Northern Ireland in July 2015. This is a wonderful park/museum/educationa​l facility/tourist attraction that traces the history of Irish emigration to America, with the various faithfully reproduced structures placed around the park in a time-line arrangement so that you can see the gradual development of houses / communities as you progress through the park. And many of the artefacts and displays are a great testament to the grit and courage of those early - and not so early - settlers. We think we've got it tough now - but really is "pure bliss" compared to the conditions those folk had to endure, both in Ireland, on the ship on the way over, and then once they arrived in America.

Anyhow, if you're ever in Northern Ireland, it's well worth a visit.

Cheers
