Winterizing: Closing Up the Cabin?
Times have changed. Many of us now enjoy our getaways all year long.

Hiking down a trail as leaves crunch beneath your feet, pulling on a fleece jacket before manning the grill, warming the night with a crackling fire in the firepit - all signs of cabin life continuing beyond summer.

It wasn't always this way. In days past, September meant kids returning to school and cabin owners closing up their getaways until spring.
But closing up the cabin is not what it once was - at least not for all families. Sure, some owners still tightly button up their cabin after Labor Day, not to return until May. But, increasingly folks are finding alternatives to locking up their investment for a good portion of the year.
Whether you're gone during winter or visit your place throughout the year, there's still some preparation to be done for winter.
