The other day at work I got talking to another guy about old log buildings and he asked, "Hey, have you seen that one on such and such road?" I said, "No I have not."
He told me about it and told me how to find it, so that is what I did last night.
I have driven by the site many times over the years, but never knew it was there.
Originally a two story, it probably resembles the original very little.
Lots of changes have been made to help preserve as many logs as possible.
But, that does not mean it is not a great find.
Note the logs to the left front of the cabin that suggest an interior wall.
The opening in the wall hides another room and stairs leading up to what would have been at one time an upstairs.
The chinking is not original and was not well done.
Although there are probably to many bad logs to preserve the cabin the way it sits, I believe there are enough good ones to rebuild a nice little cabin near the site.
A few months ago the boys from 'Barnwood Builders' had stopped by to discuss the best way to preserve it.
I am glad the owner, who is part of the original farm family still wants to keep it.
