Now that you guys have learned how to draw a house, you will now be taught “how to draw a log cabin", step by step”. A log cabin is a house that looks like it was built with just a bunch of tree logs. Remember those canisters that had a bunch of toy brown logs with green tops for roofs and red square plastic pieces for the windows? Well that is basically what you are doing with that toy is building log cabin houses. Well anyway, log cabins are popular and commonly seen around country areas and on camp grounds. Did you ever wonder who it was that brought this ingenious idea to life? Well after some extensive research, I found out that log cabins started being built during the seventeenth and eighteenth century by the Swiss and Germans who came to America with the skills and knowledge of building houses using log construction. Even though the Swiss and Germans introduced log house living to America, the Scottish and Irish eventually went from stone houses to log homes and spread their knowledge across the frontier. Now remember, log housing units were also built for temporary housing for soldiers during the Revolutionary War and for commercial purposes as well like; schools, churches, saloons, barns, gristmills, sheriff quarters, and other structures. With this lesson you will learn “how to draw a log cabin house step by step”. I shall return in a few with something new. So stay tuned for my return.
