The Log Homes of Quebec
In Quebec and throughout much of North America, the first log homes erected in the 17th century by newly-arrived settlers from Europe were often just small, simple, rustic square log cabins. Built with hand tools such as saws, axes, chisels and planes, these cabins provided the newcomers with a basic roof over their heads to stay warm, dry and safe. In many cases, these crudely built cabins were just temporary shelters or homes for use while the construction of a more practical and larger square log (pièce sur pièce) family dwelling was taking place nearby. Afterwards, these makeshift cabins often became barns for keeping livestock.
