    Re: Got the cabin roughed in completed Wed. Nov. 15th

    This is from a post I made in June. I ended up making it 40 X 16...


    I am Closing on the LAKE LAND at 9am Thursday. I then head for the Chill at Hunts in Ten.

    Bob I might just buy 12x32 prebuilt cabin, with doors and windows installed, with a porch, dropped there, in a week or two.

    Too old (69) to build one from ground up. Again lol

    So finishing the inside like a Tiny House, on YOUTUBE is my plan.

    I have many ideas, I feel good, that power, water, sewer, are in. So big work is done.

    I miss not having my place in the woods. I read a book,1979, about a DC Newspaper man, who
    built a cabin in the woods, in Va. This started my dream, and I built mine, in the 80's.
    I went many weekends, alone, and loved every night I spent. I once was scared awake,
    by Wild Turkeys, in a tree, right outside, my loft bedroom. A river flowed below my cabin
    built on a bluff. I could see for 5 miles. I had 15 acres of Ozark woods. Taxes were $89 a year.

    After 20 years someone found my secluded Cabin. They pryed open a window, and hauled off $1700
    of stuff. Having this happen, made me sad. I was so proud of all the work I had done. I went less next
    two years, weeds, poison ivy, grew back, land tried to go feral again.
    Then, Brother of a neighbor called me
    wanted to buy the `15 acres, to build a home, in meadow, at the top, by the road. My cabin
    was not even in his plan. He made it into guest cabin.

    He got me at a weak moment, shot me a offer, I thought was fair. I said yes, I signed the papers
    the day my son Tim passed away. I never could go back down there, I maybe made a mistake selling it.
    But, I did it, and now, I have a second chance!!!

    This Lake Lot is in a gated area, nice lots, level, with trees, shade, grass.... MY sister, two of her sons, lots, are in the same area.
    So they can check, on my place, while I am off riding the Trike. I Feel I can make it nice and no one will break in this one.
    I can even live there full time if I choose, because I have two lots. Not sure I will, but never know what someday I might.
    Its 6 miles from, Truman Lake, and I have a bass boat, and plan on taking grandkids, fishing, and hope to leave the Cabin to my
    Son Jason and my grandson Sam... I hope they like what grandpa does, I like having a place to go to read and fish, and ride, my
    Trike, spend some winter nights buy a woodstove, decorate it with all my Western Stuff, and Fishing things, I collected over years.

    So Sat. the troops showed up and the Tin covered the ceiling. It looked good. Sorry no Picture yet.
    My brothers and two nephews came down, and a rolling painting scaffolding did the trick.

    Took most of the day but it came together. Nice warm day on Sat. cooler this week.

    Today Tuesday I got my brothers Wayne, and Mark to meet me and we made the
    bedroom bigger by 4 ft. Wife thought the bed was to big for the space I designed.
    Ever have the wife change something? lol
