    • It’s a great cabin. Wasn’t the main house on their farm, which was a log cabin as well but much bigger. The one pictured was supposed to be a “bunk house” for the grandkids. Hell, a family of five could live in this “bunk house”. 😃

      • I love log cabins. The whole rustic look and coziness of them. Around here, they are outrageously expensive to build. Our pioneer ancestors would roll in their graves…

      • How he did it, years ago, was find original cabins throughout the state, number the logs, dismantle, then truck them in to wherever he was rebuilding it. Their original house on the farm was just a little four room stick built with a dormer room upstairs. He found two cabins in another county, took them down, then rebuilt the cabin part on the side of the original farm house. It was HUGE. Then over the years, he did the same for other people. Then he decided to build the “bunk house” as his last one. When they retired to Florida, he sold all the land and the main house. But, he kept the bunk house and about 50 acres. Those old original cabins are rarer and rarer now. The logs have pretty much been poached by now. Used to be one here on our farm, and all that’s left is the stone foundation.
