Swedish and Scandinavian people brought over log home building concepts to North America in the early 1600s when the Europeans were first beginning to settle the land over here. Back then, people simply had to make do with the materials they could find in their surrounding environment, so when these people showed them how to use the trees that surrounded them to build themselves homes, this was a wonderful opportunity. Although, before the Europeans began settling here, the Native tribes, being very connected to the land and to nature, knew how to utilize trees to their benefit, and they also built homes, lodges, canoes, tools and weapons out of trees.
