4BR/2BA cabin with over 2800 sq. ft. on 7.52 acres with gorgeous mountain views and a pond. This 16' x 24' full two story original log home made from heart pine with dovetail notching, which was the most elaborate style of notching found in corner timbering, was found near the Nolichucky River only 4 miles from where it has been reassembled in Greene County Tennessee. This cabin is the type built in the early 1800's by Scotch Irish settlers in Southern Appalachia. These original log structures are getting more scarce and expensive as time goes by, and originals are getting harder and harder to find. There is a history in an original log home that modern day kits cannot capture. Log homes maintain their part as not only an important piece of folk art, but also a wildly popular home choice in the mountains. Log cabins are warm and inviting and retain warmth better than drywall, and are more energy efficient and quieter. They are made by hand out of native materials, and by living in an original log home you feel a direct connection to those who built and lived in it. Log buildings are very symbolic of early 18th and 19th century settlers and folkways in Appalachia. The other cabin connected to the above cabin, by a 14' x 14' dogtrot, is a 1 1/2 story flat notched pine cabin that that was found just outside of Pennington Gap, Virginia. It was built in the early 1900's.Both cabins had siding that had to be removed. Then the logs were labeled for position then disassembled and transported on a flatbed truck to the current location and erected on a foundation built to size for them.Original log homes are an artifact of Appalachian culture, and a picturesque backdrop for modern activity. Homeowners often adapt log buildings for contemporary living, providing modern conveniences while maintaining the traditional look and feeling of the house.
