    This shed began its life in my mothers back yard in 1989 i think, My dad and I dragged it onto a trailer and moved it the farm in Isle of Wight County. Not realizing how much joy this would bring. It was not done making memories.

    This was the first major project on the cabin, A front porch for sitting and writing. Made of old pine wood.

    The roof of my Grandmothers home in Williams Holler located in Wirt County WV in the Rock Valley off of Cranes Nest Run had a tin roof. I enjoyed listening to the rain as it kept us dry and adds to a nap. So i knew i had to have this on the cabin. Cooper Buck is standing guard. The logs holding the roof are old oak logs i found on the farm.

    I have since added a gutter and a rain barrel.

    The front porch has become my favorite part of the cabin. The inside is only 10x6 so i needed more space. I added a plastic sheet to keep the Northern Wind and rain out. My kitchen is located on the front porch. I have electricity and an electric heater, In the future i will have a wood stove. That will come when i complete my build out. I use the stove for cooking and heating water, which i use in my bucket shower, Another post on that.

    The inside has one single bed, a fold down small bed for a kid. A desk.....now a TV that gets better reception then my cable TV at home. It is a perfect spot to retire after a days work and play,

    This was really cool to cut the tree down and then man handle it in place. then strip it like i was in colonial times. I will always remember these poles.
