The cabin is a one-story, single-pen cabin measuring 20 feet (6.1 m) by 18 feet (5.5 m). The walls are built of hewn white pine and poplar logs with dove-tail notching. The cabin's interior contains a sawn board floor, and lacks a loft. The 4-foot (1.2 m) porch consists of sawn boards over a hewn log sill. The cabin's gabled roof is covered with split oak shingles, and the roof of the porch, which is slightly lower than the cabin roof, is supported by hardwood posts. The cabin has two board and batten doors and two windows, and a chimney constructed of rubble and red clay.
