Designer’s misery

As we work on a brand new russian-speaking portal (in fact it is planned to be bilingual) I had a task for one of the designers to create a logo that would incorporate some sort of russian ancient hut, such as house built of wooden poles… Sounds simple enough, designer is russian, he knows what the hut looks like since 50% of all tales deal with a hut in a woods…

You have no idea what kind of strange and miserable constructions I was presented with. Just the least scary ones:

Is this a hut or what?

If I lived in woods, I would not like to live here...
