vertical-log cabin

vertical-log cabin

A log cabin whose exterior logs are oriented vertically rather than horizontally; this construction requires more time and greater skill than if the logs are oriented horizontally, as is usual. For an example of construction in which vertical logs are driven in the ground, see poteaux-en-terre; also see poteauxsur-sole, a somewhat similar construction where the vertical logs rest on a wood foundation.
