 Log style homes have been around for as far back as the Roman times. The first log cabins were built in Nordic countries, and it was the settlers of those Scandinavian countries that first introduced these homes to America. In New England, for example, the main purpose of log cabins was functional rather than to look aesthetically pleasing. These types of homes can be found mostly in the Midwestern and Western parts of the US in the rural areas. The modern versions of log homes have changed considerably, with limited styles but larger in size and the same materials as the older counterparts. But there isn’t just one style of log cabin.

Today, the modern style of round houses has evolved into grand architectural designs that stand out as unique structures.
