Log cabin

dwelling constructed of logs; mostly used in a log house

A log cabin is a house built from wooden logs. They were first built in Norway, but are usually associated with the woods areas of the United States.[1] Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin, and that is the basis for the toy "Lincoln Logs". Log Cabins have also been a symbol in American politics, as some Presidents said they were born in log cabins to make them seem closer to the people."[2] A group of Republicans who dislike some of the stands of the Republican Party call themselves "Log Cabin Republicans"..[3]
