The craftsmanship exhibited in this small building makes it a good example of the type. The gable-roofed building has a smaller, gable-roofed entry that serves as an unheated storage area. All of the living takes place in the main room. The round logs, saddle notched at the corners, the sod roof with a covering of flattened fuel cans, and the compactness of the building are typical features of one-man log cabins. When these photographs were taken in 1984, the cabin was occupied by one man, whose neatly arranged possessions illustrate a compact way of life in a small space.
