Some more from Rustic Cabin Life
To me this looks like a small house attached to a barn, may be to make access to the animals easier in bad weather.
The larger building is not chinked like the smaller cabin, nor are there any visible windows.
There could be a chimney on the far side of the bigger building which could spoil my theory.
There is an Allen Pond in Maine, but it is just my guess.
Shingles on the ends of the gables are pretty common in New England.
Look at the size of the logs.
The thickness and the width of the logs would suggest the logs were split and two logs were got from each tree.
The chimney is very well built.
The churn is made from one stump.
Looks like it was made of pine (or some other softer wood), and the logs were never de-barked.
A stove seems to be present instead of a fire place.
Chickens all over the place. Clothes line made from a bent over tree.
The rocking chair moved out into the yard. The logs are beautifully hewn, and the cabin is not yet finished.
The hole in the roof is where the chimney will pass through.
Notice the doors and windows have not yet been cut in.
