It provided shelter, protection, and a foundation upon which to build a great empire. The pioneer cabin, understandably, was a necessity. Even in today's modern and complex world, many people still reside in cabins built to withstand permanent housing. In addition, cabins that serve as hunting and fishing lodges, summer cottages, and bungalows are seen as recreational luxuries.
