A log house is a house typically built of logs that have not been milled into conventional lumber and is structurally identical to a log cabin. The definition "log house" is used more often than "log cabin" by most builders because log cabins are usually smaller and more rustic log buildings (summer house in the woods, hunting cabins, tool houses, or a small hunting cabins). The log home has a long history. Vitruvius Polio was the first architect who described construction with logs in his Tactato del'architectura (Treatise on architecture). He wrote that in Pontus (today Romania, former Roman Empire province Dacia) residential buildings were made by laying horizontally over top of each other and filling in the gaps with "chips and mud". Construction with logs was widely used in Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden and Finland), the Baltic States and Northern Russia where most of the trees are straight, spiny and tall (pine, spruce). Also log construction was common building technique in Eastern Central Europe, the Balkans, the Alps and some parts of Asia, where similar climatic conditions dominate. In today's fast-moving world full of technological innovations log houses are built easily and can last hundreds of years.
