Log Cabin Tiny House

in 1947, during the lumber shortage following WWII, F R Hadden felled trees in the Congerville Timber and built this log cabin to house the tenant living on his farm near Carlock, IL. The house was just 20 by 22 and set on a concrete foundation. The Pantagraph did not report whether it was fitted with electricity or running water. The logs were "slab cut," or planed on three sides. The inside walls were finished with plywood and the cracks between the logs were filled with waterproof compound. The first tenants to live in the cabin were Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Mishler.
