we will be working on the cabin these dates
The interior of the multipurpose cabin is our priority in 2010! The exterior work is wrapping up nicely, although staining will be a big job.
You, alone or with a friend, are welcome to join us any time we are out working on the cabin and land (see work schedule). If you have some free time & would like to come out, please RSVP by email or phone so we can plan accordingly.
Do you have specific skills to offer? Are there projects you're interested in working on? Let us know so we can match your skills to the projects at hand.

1st thru 15th: soffits
20th thru 23rd: prep for insulation

Causes and conditions just might work out so that we can begin to inhabit this cabin in the fall or early winter.
Please note that accommodations & facilities are limited. We have two tent cabins, a tipi, an outhouse, running water (without heater), and simple cooking facilities. If roughing it doesn't appeal, there are many local lodging options, including nearby B&Bs and a friend's cabin. (More on staying at LP.)
Please RSVP in advance: email or phone (608-780-0481).
