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!
