1. Dogtrot Construction of the Cabin
Dog Trot log cabins are essentially two log cabins separated by an area that is usually left open. The area in between the cabins/pens, is referred to as a Trot & was used as a breezeway in the Southern States. Dog Trot log cabins are generally oriented so that summer prevailing winds could be used for cooling.
