The Famous One Log House (23 pics)

Posted in Pictures   26 May 2010   / 17420 views

This Redwood Log House is unique. It is made from one trunk of a Redwood tree by Len Moore who came up with this cool idea after finding a shelter in the Redwood tree trunk during a storm. Because this tree was really giant, the creator decided to build a house out of one log.

The house was constructed in 1938. It looks impressive, but the mere fact is that the tree used for the house “walls” was almost 2000 years old.

Actually there were 4 log houses built from one trunk, and one house now belongs to Robert Ripley. This cabin is 33 feet long. It contains over 11,000 feet of lumber, enough to build a five bedroom house. And it’s famous all over the world.

It's not a real tree - it's made of fiberglass.

Wow, it's pretty old, eh?

I can't stop thinking about The Three Little Pigs, and if the pig who used sticks used one giant Redwood - and just plowed over any wolves by running around in side it like a hamster wheel.

British Columbia has some lovely big trees.
