    Thanks for those pics. I love old cabins. That one is incredible.

    Its old school...it was built right on the ground. About twenty years ago the previous owners had to replace the bottom two courses because they rotted out and it was starting to go. It is still on the ground, no foundation sitting on gravel now instead of dirt, but the original logs are protected again and only the newer ones exposed. The plank floor was replaced at that time too. The boards in the ceiling are original and have saw markings that reflect they were made by a hand crosscut saw and not a powered circular saw. I'n thinking a two man crosscut saw, but its a guess. A tough way to make a board, but hey they were tough back then !

    Tustumena,
    What kind of foundation and floor set up does that cabin have?

    here's a couple...finns and swedes were known to build log cabins here from the 1880's to 1930's and employed the beautiful dovetail notch corners you see. brown bears like to mark the place in my absence hence the blonde wood in spots but we all get along together when i return.

    the earliest cabin in this area, well the remains of it, was dated in the 1860's by tree ring configuration dating. Probably Russian trapper built by the Promyshlenniki that came to the Peninsula as far back as the late 1700's.

    Our Place

    Here are a few pictures of our place. I can't take credit because I bought it as is, but I am upgrading. Iíve installed a windmill and am hoping to get a solar array in this summer.

    On the to do list:
    Root cellar
    Equipment shed
    Improve the dock
    Rebuild an antique wood cook stove
    Hydroelectric plant
    Finish building the airplane
