In Scotland and Ireland early in the 3rd century A.D. the Celts began to build homes made of logs. In fact the word "cabin" comes from the Gaelic "Cabine" for house of logs. When the Scots and Irish began to settle in the new world early in the 17th century, once again they could realize their ancient building materials and the little log house of the prairie became the standard for early pioneers as they stretched out across America.
