We purchased the cabin in September 2008 and with help from our family we have extensively rebuilt the entire home since that time. We completely stripped the inside and outside down to the studs, re-wired and re-insulated then rebuilt the entire home using a style we call "rustic elegance".

We think you'll agree, this cabin offers a grand getaway from everyday life, while maintaining the modern features we've become accustom to.

Below is a scrap book of our renovation efforts.

First we replaced all the exterior windows and doors

We removed all of the interior plywood siding and the old cotten batting used for wall insulation. There was no insulation in the attic. No wonder this house was soooo cold in the winter!

While we had the walls exposed we completely rewired the main and second floor and partitioned off a new bathroom upstairs

Split logs and tongue and grove were added to the ceiling in the Great Room

Geri works on sanding one of the 1/2 logs from the lodge remodel. It was used as an end post in the kitchen.

The next spring we worked on the exterior remodel. We completely stripped the old log siding off the walls and repaired all of the rot underneath.

Lynn works on the scratch coat and Geri cleans the stone after grouting. Then we start the front porch.

6x6 timbers were used to frame the front porch. Hand peeled log railing compliments the exterior style.

It's hard to belive that our beautiful cabin started as an ugly duckling. It would be nice if Google Streets would update their photo of it :)
