Log cabins are houses that are made of logs and bricks that people used to live in in the old western times, as well as some in the modern times. Plankton paints a portrait of a log cabin in the episode "Bucket Sweet Bucket."
They are simple cottage-type log cabins with a shingled roof, with the walls being made of logs. The bottom of the house is made of stones cemented together.
In the episode "Bucket Sweet Bucket," Plankton decides to let SpongeBob and Patrick paint the Chum Bucket for him, while Squidward thinks they are doing it incorrectly, in which he decides to help. Squidward attempts to paint fancy paintings of himself on the Chum Bucket, but Plankton comes by and says that it's all wrong. Plankton then repaints the Chum Bucket into a picture of a log cabin, much to Squidward's disappointment. The log cabin picture does not appear again after that.
- When Plankton paints the log cabin, it is in different colors of paint. However, at first, the color is only blue.
- It is unknown how Plankton goes down from the Chum Bucket since he is only seen going up.
