Log cabin rustic
English settlers did not widely use log cabins, building in forms more traditional to them. Careful notching minimized the size of the gap between the logs and reduced the amount of chinking (sticks or rocks) or daubing (mud) needed to fill the gap. These stones are found below the corners of many 18th-century cabins as they are restored. Chinking refers to a broad range of mortar or other infill materials used between the logs in the construction of log cabins and other log-walled structures. These roofs typify many log cabins built in the 20th century, having full-cut 2×4 rafters covered with pine and cedar shingles.

British settlers had no tradition of building with logs, but they quickly adopted the method. Few log cabins dating from the 18th century still stand, but they were often not intended as permanent dwellings.
Cabin corners were often set on large stones; if the cabin was large, other stones were used at other points along the sill (bottom log). In fact, log homes are frequently considered to be on the leading edge of the green building movement. Flatter roofed cabins might have had only 2 or 3 gable-wall logs while steeply pitched roofs might have had as many gable-wall logs as a full story.
Harrison’s example, making the idea of a log cabin—and, more generally, a non-wealthy background—a recurring theme in campaign biographies.
