a local sawmill to be cut into lumber. After drying the wood for a couple of years, we built the
bunkhouse nestled in the woods. Ed built custom twin bunkbeds from walnut and

12 people, dormitory-style. The cabin has heat, electricity, and air conditioning.

The nearby shower house has four modern showers with private dressing rooms and
