Peirce Log cabin


Peirce Log cabin
  • DESCRIPTION : ; Exceptionally Built, Circa Pre 1850, with cantilevered logs.
  • SIZE :16’ x 24’, 1 ½ Story, Built in Cantilever for porch, 16” - 12” faces.
  • SPECIES :Oak, with exception to 3 Poplar logs.
  • NOTCH TYPE : Half Dovetail, with very steep angles.
  • COMMENTS :This extremely well built cabin is “One of a Kind”. Most people think a Cabin is a Cabin, not the case here! Being a Home Builder myself for over 42 years I can attest to the fact that all cabins are built with varying degrees of quality, just like todays homes.
  • This Cabin features quality construction methods and details I’ve very seldom encountered in the well over 500 old log cabins I’ve viewed in my lifetime, especially in a smaller Cabin such as this one. This Old Log Cabin was built with high quality corner notches and extremely tight/small Chink joints (spaces between each course of logs). At a cost of over $275.00 per bucket of synthetic chinking, this cabin will actually save you money compared to other lower quality cabins with large chink joints on the market today. Many of the logs had to be hewn on top and bottom so they would fit so tight!
  • This Early Frontier Cabin from Ohio also featured 2 interior stone fireplaces, one on the first floor, and one on the second floor. Unfortunately the soft Ohio sandstone doesn’t hold up well to time and the elements, so it could not be salvaged. Normally a feature, such as 2 Log Cabin Fire Places, only occurs on a much larger Old Log House.
  • Other Vintage Cabin details that sets this Antique Cabin apart from others is how this Frontier Cabin Builder fashioned logs to cantilever over the front and back porch. Even the log cabin first course side logs extended past the main structure to act as a base for the porches. Side logs also had notches/ledge precut in them to receive the flooring which is usually achieved by just nailing a board the side of the logs.
  • According to reports, from descendants of original owners, a Tornado tore the roof off in the later part of the 1800’s, and at that time a course of hewn logs was added to make the second story taller. The added course of top logs need to be renotched to tighten up the chink joint gap that can be seen in the pictures. Other than the first course log on the left side that needs replaced, the cabin is 100% ready to go.
