Abstract: While writing my thesis on floating in Finnish Lapland, I was amazed to discover that the first floating workers' dwellings built in Lapland bore very little resemblance to the local rural buildings. Knowing that forestry had been - especially in its early days when virgin resource areas had to be found - an international industry, I started looking for parallels in the camp architecture of other areas. In my paper I will first take a general look at forestry in the northern regions with particular reference to migration, and then debate the question of how the migratory character of the forest industry was reflected in the material culture of forest work, especially the dwellings of forest workers.
