As more settlers dwelled together in ever larger comminutes more businesses would set up around them, these business owners’ were able to earn their livings supplying local wants and needs; before the setting up of a local saw mill to manufacturing sawn planks and clapboards almost all dwellings were made from felled and hewn logs. New English log cabins used large straight timbers for their horizontal ‘Log On Log’ construction with axe or adze hewn plank floorboards, often called “boarden floored”, to walk on.
As the needs of a settler and his family grew so he had to make a larger home for them, often this first meant building an upper storey on top of his original sturdy ‘log on log’ cabin. This upper floor would be accessed by way of a simple loft ladder, leading to a boarden floored loft area, often well lit by simple rustic windows, and heated by the breast of the chimney.
