The pioneer's first home was often a log cabin with small, single room about 5 metres by 6 metres with a dirt floor.

Later, after a saw mill was set up in the community, a new plank home would be built.  It usually was a 2 story home and was much larger, with at least 3 or 4 rooms, all with wooden floors.
