Taylor Log House.
19th c American Vernacular Architecture
(active 19th c - )
The Taylor Log House was constructed according to the 'two pen dog trot' design, common in Mr. Taylor's home state of Kentucky. Note the fireplaces at the end of each 'pen'. The two 'pens' are separated by a 'dog trot', a center covered hallway. The far 'pen' had a 'family room', cooking and living quarters. The near 'pen' had a bedroom, sewing room and work room for Mr. Taylor's parents. The children slept in a loft above the rooms accessible by a pull-down ladder. The Taylors raised cattle, hogs and hay.
