Big difference in probably one of the worst built and best built cabins in the Smokies the smaller shabbier cabin of Matilda’s was hurriedly thrown together. The larger very well built cabin was built by Henry Whitehead after he married her….. There is always room for improvement wheatear it be in buildings, our own lives or our photography/Arts. So often we get hung up on our way being best. Usually it is only best for us. Never be afraid to try and do different things, ya never know it could be a big improvement in your on life/works…The planks on the end of the big cabin was placed over the sawn logs on this side of the cabin. This was the side that caught most the bad weather and improved the weather ability of it. The sawn logs already were masterfully crafted but Henry saw they could be improved upon…………More on Henry’s place are found with other photos of this place images below are also links. The Smokehouse can be seen in the far back side of the cabins.
