Building a Cabin for Free - Part 3

Wow! Has it really been this long since I posted? Well we've had an eventful few months - one of the biggest events has been me getting laid off in early May. Needless to say my focus has been on things other than building out little wilderness cabin. But today I finally took another little step toward making the cabin a reality.

I'm back to checking the "free" listings on Craigslist regularly and I found a lady looking to get rid of some scrap lumber. So me and two of my boys made the 20 mile trek to the country to pick up a collection of 2x4s, 2x6s, and 2x8s. Most of the wood is in pretty good shape. Any thing we can't use we'll just burn this fall/winter. We'll try to find more goodies this week.

So far we have a door and some windows and this load of lumber. But we still need alot more. Stay tuned!
