New France Settler's Cabin

This highly detailed laser cut wargames model kit joins 4Ground’s growing range of  American Legend buildings.

This model with very accessible, fully detailed, interior makes an ideal objective or terrain piece for The French Indian Wars, The War Of Independence, The War Of 1812-15, the Civil War, Wild West and even early C20th Prohibition Bootleg Gangs.

The French settlers of New France built their first homes and hunting cabins with Poteau en Terre - post in ground or ‘earthfast’ - construction, which was made with well hewned vertical log timber posts driven into the ground.  For their more permanent dwellings, like this one, ‘poteaux-sur-solle’ - post on cill - was used, though lots more hewning was required to square the logs, this method was easier to undertake and much preferred to ‘pièce sur pièce’ - log piece on log piece - used by the New English.

The inside floor was suspended from supporting posts and insulated underneath the floor, windows had shutters on the outside, the roof was covered with split shingles and the Chimney was constructed by making a wooden frame and infilling with coursed small stones.  So simple and yet well designed that for hundreds of years this small type of dwelling was built by the decedents of pioneering Acadians, Cajans (Canadians transplanted south) and Creoles of Louisiana.

28mm Scale models supplied unassembled. Miniatures not included.
