Log Cabin Restoration
This country house is comprised of two circa 1820 Ohio log houses, both of which are excellent examples of early Ohio vernacular architecture. One cabin came from Ashland County and the other from Coshocton County. Both are made from white oak, the wood of choice due to its resistance to insect damage and decay, and many of the logs are in excess of 20" wide. The Mount Vernon Barn Company incorporates modern high-tech products such as Perma-Chink to enable historic structures such as these log houses to be adapted to 21st century living standards. With the use of these materials, these structures are comfortable and very energy efficient. Historic, salvaged architectural details have been incorporated into the Morgan log houses, including 20"+ wide board flooring, a reclaimed mid-19th century curly maple staircase and a reclaimed 19th century hand-planed walnut staircase.
