Description

In the early to mid 1900s, winter fur trapping in South Louisiana was an important lifestyle both economically and socially. Entire communities including the schools and churches were affected by the coming and going of the trappers. At the beginning of every winter, these fur trappers would pack all of their necessary belongings and travel to the swamp and bayous. Some trappers lived in simple land-based camps, but others lived in trapper's cabins which were designed as floating camps. The life of a trapper was filled with simple pleasures as well as hard work. The girls helped their mothers with cleaning and cooking while the boys assisted their fathers with the trapping and cleaning of animals skins. When the trapping season finished, the families would return to their homes in towns and the children would return to school to await the next years' trapping season.

This beautiful model brings to life the lifestyle of these rural trapper. From the skins hanging on the wall and the woodpile used for heat and cooking, to the work in progress to fix a leaky roof, this cabin is a small snapshot of Louisiana trapping culture. This piece shows everything that a trapper needs to begin the season. Since there is so much detail on this model, see the pictures for what is included in this cabin. Cabin is 12"l x 6.5"w x 6.5"h. The cabin itself is made from Birch wood with the barge, roof, and most everything else is made from Cypress.

The pics are from a previous trapper's cabin that I've created. The cabin is made to order but will include the items shown. Because this cabin is handmade it will look slightly different than the pictures (i.e wood grain, shape, shade of color, etc.) but will include everything shown.

Upon receiving order, I will confirm purchase. As this is a detailed and tedious item to make, it will take me about 4 weeks to make. However, once ordered, I will keep the buyer updated on progress of cabin. Shipping will include insurance.
