The Cabin is 1295 sq. feet of interior space with another 350 sq. feet of roofed arctic entry ,decks, and  other entry porches. This property also includes additional buildings such as a Shop, Generator/greenhouse and an animal barn.
Most of these pictures were taken in the fall of 2015 before new roofing systems and final finisishing was begun. In fall of 2017 these upgrades were finished and shown now throughout the website.
