Finnish log buildings have existed in the US since Colonial times. All Finnish log houses built at the turn of the 19th century and the remaining Colonial log structures show the same fit locking of the logs that is different from the log houses built by others.
Mr. Frank W. Eld from Idaho has studied these old buildings and will visit the Finnish Room Committee in April. He will make a presentation of his study on Friday, April 11 at the University of Pittsburgh Cathedral of Learning Room 1228 at 4:30 p.m. He will advise the Finnish Room Committee about the design for the Finnish Room. Carpenters, other craftsmen and the public are invited. Refreshments will be served. RSVP 412-624-6150.
