One Man's Cozy DIY Cabin
Doing the dance of the block-and-tackle
December 17, 2010
If you’ve ever read the “Little House on the Prairie” series, you’ll probably remember detailed passages of Pa building log cabins for the family. It was always a frantic rush just ahead of the winter winds, felling and notching trees with simple hand tools. There would be the occasional help of a kindly frontier neighbor, some assistance from Ma (until she was injured in the process), but mostly it was man versus wilderness in a battle of survival.
