What is interesting and rare about this one is the logged gable ends. This usually indicates that the cabin is real old and has probably never been moved before.
When logs were easy to come by, but milled lumber was not, log gables were the standard.
Once better roofing supplies and milled lumber came along or in more populated areas, framed gables became common.
This brought an end to a great year.
