Building a Cabin in the Colorado Mountains

Posted by: Rick

Let's start by looking back at the history of the cabin. I maintained a static web page, starting back in 2000 (when I had a dial-up Internet connection), that detailed the process of building the cabin. Rather than recreate all that here, I'll just provide a link to that original content created over a two year period. It is quite long, maybe even hard to read in a single sitting. But, it will give you the whole story and is a good introduction to what is to follow in this blog. It can also serve as a roadmap for those of you considering the same adventure. Enjoy!

“When you think of the long and gloomy history of man, you will find more hideous crimes have been committed in the name of obedience than have ever been committed in the name of rebellion.” – C.P. Snow
