    Damn if this doesn't look like an old cabin kitchen in Michigan! You can still find places like this if you look hard enough.
    My original cabin on 1 acre was built in around 1910 of local white pine. It has a old gas stove and refrigerator and a hand pump over the kitchen sink.

    The really old ones still standing here are old growth white pine. The oldest part of my first cabin is framed with rough sawed white pine 2x4's and that stuff is so hard after 100 years you have to drill a pilot hole in it to drive a screw into it.

    I was referring to the 1 1/2" diameter poles that they used as chinking to seal the gaps between the big logs.

    No! It's good, at least what was required last time I did a service. Yeah, it's been a few years, don't think code has changed that much, come to think of it, last service I did was underground....

    Joe Thompson’s Cabin, Lake Clark National Park, Alaska

    Joe Thompson was a trapper in Alaska during the early part of the 20th century. He built this cabin by hand, using lumber he found in the surrounding forests. He used gas cans for the roof and around the bottom and also used moss for insulation between logs. Lake Clark National Park has no roads in or out and is only accessible by boat or bush plane. This cabin is a 30-minute boat ride from the nearest town of Port Alsworth. One can only imagine the amount of work it took to build.

    When I see an old house or cabin I see potential, how I would fix it, an so on.
    I see lots of potential with these...
