    Posts like this are why I follow this page. Thank you so much for sharing this. The land is important to me and this one is perfectly situated on a great parcel. I would prefer something that could utilize my skills in restoration but I could make due here and still find enough projects to keep me busy. The small cabin looks like a good starting project here. I would explore the use of contemporary material and what it is accomplishing in the overall scheme. Then I would analyze what reclaimed material I could use to replace the newer. I’m not criticizing the accomplishments that have been installed I would just like to keep the true log cabin feel when it is possible. Thanks again for the post of this property.

    Is there somewhere to get some history of this cabin?

    The pond was man-made within the last 50 years, probably about the same time the cabin was modernized. The property is perfect for what it is, an old cabin on a lovely forested tract with systems to make living with nature comfortable. It’s not terribly remote either, a good thing for most folks.
