Log Cabin Topping Off Celebration
For years, log cabin builders have celebrated the moment the log cabin structure reaches it’s apex or highest point. The age-old tradition, originally conceived to bestow good luck on a log cabin and ward off evil spirits is now more commonly recognised as an opportunity to thank the workforce and celebrate the progress made.
Way-back In the 14th century, it was most customary to put a yew tree branch at the highest point of the timber building to keep evil spirits at bay. Today we continue this long-held tradition using a branch of a sapling if possible.
