Cabin Country: Welcome, great-grandchildren

  • Updated: December 12, 2013 - 2:39 PM

Built in 1960, this cedar cabin was constructed entirely from milled cedar power poles. During the course of a single summer, everything from the drop siding to the tongue/grooved paneling to the 2- by 6-foot rafters to joists were walked in about a quarter mile. A “sand point” was driven about 16 feet into the ground with a pitcher pump added, providing the hunters with cooking and washing water for the past 50-plus years. “Hydawain” is heated by a vintage 1930s porcelain cooking range, and the lighting “system” consists of two white gas-powered Coleman lanterns. The rustic look of “Hydawain” is enhanced by the surrounding mature white pines. Needless to say everything is “old style” — much like the beer we drink here during hunting season.
