I bought a log cabin built by the Amish. It's small but just the right size for a hunting cabin. No electricity, no well for water yet and a outhouse. I've been using oil lamps for light and I like the atmosphere their soft glow gives. I had it moved to a small lake on my hunting property

That is an incredible place.
I would say you are a very lucky man except I expect luck had nothing to do with it.
What's the saying? Luck follows good planning. :)

I like sitting on the porch watching the geese and ducks fly in and off the lake. This winter I plan on sipping coffee at my little table by the window watching Tip-Up's on the lake.
You can't see from the picture the u-nique-ness of the table. It's cut from a thick pine slab with worm holes in the top.

I am officially envious. Outhouses don't worry me, they just encourage an expeditious journey. Imagine a well with a hand pump and a camp stove for cooking and coffee. (SIGH!!) By our standards, that is a pleasure palace. Thanks for sharing the photos.

PS: What will you use for heat in the winter?

Beautiful. Just the right size and a nice big porch. I have been dreaming of something similar. Guess I need to make it happen. Congrats on yours.

You are very fortunate and I am sure worked very hard to achieve you dream. I have always wanted a place such as yours perhaps some day a few acers with a lake and a small cabin has always been one of my dreams. A place to escape to with the long rifles and dog, maybe the wife sometimes. (If she is nice to me) Congrulations on your achievement.

Well done. I am sure that you will enjoy it. I built a log cabin in 2000 on my hunting property and just spent 5 days there working and enjoying myself.
