Hello all,Lately I have been thinking about making a cedar log cabin sauna for my cabin in the woods. I was thinking I could some how rig it up with a small wood stove. Anyone have any comments or suggestions to me about this? I am planning on squaring the logs so for it. My cabin is a scribe fit log cabin but I would rather not do that much work just for this sauna. Thanks!
A few weeks back my family had the opportunity to go to my brother’s cabin on the Cartecay River up in north Georgia for a four day weekend. It is a beautiful place to visit and the log cabin has all of the amenities, is very nice, and has ample room for a large family to live in comfort. There is a screened in porch that stretches all the way across the back of the cabin and a stone covered patio on the bottom floor under the porch. The porch and patio have ample furnishings. On the po...
On July 10, 2010 I began to build my log hunting cabin. It starts with harvesting blown down white pine. We had a horrendous wind storm two years ago that left millions of board feet of timber in ruins. We put some it to good use. Go to my website and navigate to “Work-In-Progress”. There you will see the White Pine hunter’s cabin being created from logs, to lumber, to rough cabin, and finally, to finished cabin. I’m building the log cabin right outside of my woo...

These are from another view point. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~You may notice a lot of dead Birch trees. I guess a bug called “Saw Fly” is responsible.I leave them for the Flickers.
I’ve been fiddling around, & organizing my photos. I took a little break, & made this short slideshow video. These picture where taken last fall, 2006.This video was taken kind of close to the cabin. I have another with the tripod set from a different vantage point. I’ll post that in another blog.
Barb was feeling better last Thursday, so we took a jaunt up to our cabin for the day. We new in advance what to expect when we got there. Our good Neighbor called us a about it. A big old Black Spruce tree, between 90, & 100 years old, had blown down right in front of our cabin. He was kind enough to cut some of the lower branches that were on our dock. We were fortunate, because it missed or dock by an eye lash. It destroyed a glider, but I didn’t feel too bad, because...
