The Cabin


This is the cabin on the island. Craig's grandfather built it by hand. You'll notice the deck is falling down in the front. Shortly after I took this picture, Craig took the deck down with the help of two friends and constructed a new deck with some rough-cut lumber he brought back from the mainland.

The cabin has two bedrooms in back, a kitchen and a large living room up front. There is no electricity or running water. The cabin is lit by propane and oil lanterns. There's a hand-dug cesspool under the cabin, so there's a working toilet, but you need water from the lake (brought up by bucket) in order to flush it. During colder months, the cabin is heated by a cannon stove in the living room, which I'm told heats the whole thing rather nicely.
