Here is pictures of the rebuilding of the Main Property starting in the 90's and only now nearing completion. The last picture shows the Cabin today.
 
Life was a great deal harder in those days as almost everything was achieved by hand and carried largely on your back.
 
The sequence starts with the demolition of the original 1970s cabin that had collapsed spectacularily during an 8 foot snowfall year and because of our "Hippydippy" construction methods. Enjoy.

Our Hippy cabin was held together with wooden pegs and looked much like a Saltine Cracker box.
