A hipped roof log house? Yup. Nathan and I found this gem south of Houston, MN. This place is really intact! Other than a new asphalt roof installed a few years back, the place hasn’t really changed since about 1890. The front half of the hipped roof block is log. The log core was originally a one and 1/3 story three room house, likely Norwegian built. It measures 16’5″ x 27′. Sometime between 1870 and 1895 the roof was taken off, a second floor added, and the back half of the house constructed, and all tied together with a hipped roof.
