The owners had purchased the remains of two demolished log cabins — the logs were old and looked great, but some had rot and the whole collection would need to be pieced together into a new cabin on a new lot.

These drawings show the outlines of the reconstruction: a traditional dog-trot arrangement that creates a central stair hall, a stone kitchen addition on the rear, and a porch-like addition on the back with bathrooms in it.  Although the end result is new, the overall shape suggests the type of add-ons that typically accumulate on older structures and so allow a three-bedroom house to be built from the remnants of two small cabins.
