Built For $500 With No Previous Construction Experience.
Completed in 8 months, with no previous construction experience, and in his spare time, this simple, but cozy log cabin outstanding.
Most the the $500 went into the lumber that went into the roof. All of the items that were worth $0 as they were scrap to begin with and they only took on value when made fixed up and use of.
– The stove was donated because by a friend who had it sitting in his scrap pile and he knew it could be used.
– A farmer had a bunch of thrown-out windows in a garbage pile in his back field. He said that if they could dig out of the snow, take them.
– The door was a coffee table that a friend had made, it was going to be thrown out as the varnish didn’t go on properly.
There are a few things that still need to be done to to make sure this cabin lasts 100+ years, but this little log cabin is an outstanding build.
