[E. L. Moore's Cabin; J. R. Fisher collection]
This is a third backwoods cabin in the same style as the two from the J. Collier collection I posted back in the spring.
The Cabin is another model in E. L. Moore's backwoods style that I discussed in the Apple Cider Mill post. He seemed to lavish a lot of attention on these models. My guess is there is some personal connection, although that's purely speculation on my part - I hope I can one day determine which of his builds are in someway connected to his past.
The inside of this model is waiting for detail unlike the large cabin with its fully detailed interior.
It would be a difficult life living through the winter in the northern USA or Canada in this cabin. You'd need a huge stack of firewood to put in that fireplace to keep warm.
The sagging roof is a nice touch. E. L. Moore was a master of this backwoods style. Wood is a material that moves over time in response to loads, and his Central Warehouse, which is also in the backwoods style, is a humorous take on that.
