Yes , cabins are becoming less and less primative. However, from what I know about cottagers in Ontario, there is a growing movement against the modernization and up-scaling of cottages. Many are moving towards the more primative experience. I spent a couple weekends at a very old log cabin that a former employer owned in central PA. 'Loved it but depit my attraction to the rustic, I didn't feel that cozy when I woke up at night to see bats circling above my bed. That cabin was ruined by an attempt to preserve it: a wood preservative was painted onto the exterior logs and apparently the porcupines liked it so much they began gnawing at it. The owner had to clad the lower 4ft. or so in galvanized steel panels, just to save it from ruin! There is a sub topic of cabins that has been written about and been the subject of at least one photo essay that I have seen and that is the Pennsylvania Deer Camp. Interesting, but not much architecture there. Le Corbusier had a very simple rustic cabin that I saw published somewhere....
