Old time Russian log houses and log cabins photo gallery.

Real Russian architecture is not a cityline of uninspiring, grey concrete apartment buildings, built by Soviets for Soviet people. Real Russia is different. At least - it was different. It is still possible to find some old log houses built in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries in any part of Russia. Unfortunatly most of old log houses are abandoned or not properly cared. So these traditional wooden houses are disappearing from the Russian landscape.

Old log houses and log huts or cabins (in Russian - 'Izba') play an important role in Russian architecture and design. Russian log hut or cabin means simple one- or 1½-story structure. There were little change in a simple rectangular floor plan design and design of steep, chalet-style roofs since the Viking time in Russia. Walls are built by placing logs one onto another with interlockes (joints) at corners. There are about 50 traditional Russian types of log house corner joints.
