Timber Camp Mobile Homes




Many young men would remember the days when they lived in homes like these. Built sturdily these homes have bases which are made up of two logs.

When moving to another camp site the house is dragged and the round logs are just easily pulled by a good bulldozer.

they are definitely different from log cabins and other mobile homes. Usually they are dusty on dry days and muddy wet days.

Life was definitely difficult for the bachelors. Those who had wives with them also suffer just as much because domestic appliances are very limited and water can be insufficient most of the time.
