Houses and cabins aren’t mutually exclusive. This means that something can be both a house and a cabin.
A house can be defined as a building where one or more people live and a cabin is a type of house where one or more people live.
What makes a cabin a cabin is its look and location, although there are exceptions to this. A cabin is traditionally a small rustic house in the woods or near a lake.
So, all cabins are houses but not all houses are cabins. Got it?
