Ok, here’s what I usually do if I need somethin’ real quick. Takes about a day to finish if ya got the logs. That’s a winter day too, so a short one.
Gives ya a little dry place to rest when you need it.
Start with about 14 straight logs, make sure they’re manageable if yer doin’ this by yourself.
That means 6” wide or less for most of ya.
They should be as tall as you want your cabin, so about 7-8’ or so. Bury them a foot in the ground, so they stand up straight. Do it like the pattern you want your floor. Leave a space about 2 feet for the door.
After that, take as many 8-10’ logs and stack ‘em in the walls. Stick ‘em together with a mixture of mud and straw. Not too much mud, not too much straw. Gotta be a solid mixture. This will insulate it.
When the walls are done, take some more straight logs and line ‘em up to make a roof. Notch ‘em if you want them to stay better.
Add some more mortar and there you go! A real quick place to stay when you don’t got the time to make a real one.
