I love the city life, but I also long to have a cabin in the woods one day. A place that is cozy, serene, and away from the din of man- very much like this cabin built by Greg of Clutch Camera. He recently completed the 200 sq/ft cabin located in the Minnesota wilderness, just 30 miles from Canada. All the wood used for the timber frame cabin was locally sourced, and the exterior siding is reclaimed western red cedar, milled from old telephone poles.
The cabin doesn't have running water, but there is a lake on the property! The cabin is also surrounded by maple trees, which Greg describes as "more spectacular than can be written about" when they change color in autumn.
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
