The building it self is shows the use of building materials that were found in this area in the early 1900. The logs were
cut and pealed . Next they were notched and then put together in the shape of the building. Doorways and window opening were
cut out as the walls were built. The opening between the logs were filled with moss from the forest floor. The dirt floor
is to address the fire hazard of the black smith shop
