It looks like an all day rain is going to be in store up here outside Cable, Wis., and I don’t feel too creative, so here is a pictorial of where I’m staying with Dennis Kruse. The house started as a one room cabin, with a sleeping loft, back in ’79. Since then, Dennis has added on to the cabin, plus added new structures. It is pretty much a compound now, with 3 separate structures, each with sleeping areas. I’ve participated in a lot of the construction and it is sort of an on-the-job creation as we do it. It could use one more building, to make the area more symmetric, but I haven’t heard of a new ground breaking plans. Okay, here are some photos. It’s a super nice place.

New porch recently.
Primitive living lodge. It’s called that because it doesn’t have plumbing.

Just used cedar decking instead of clear cedar. It works great.
