How a Log Cabin Was Built

Here's a collection photos provided by Marty Pickard. The photos show how their log cabin was contructed on the lake.
Click on the photo's for a full size picture.

These are photos of our log cabin. All the logs were hauled out of the water by my father in the mid 1960's. The mortar between the logs was being done when John Glenn walked on the moon (1969 ?). Kids who walk past think this is where the pioneers lived. The log cabin in winter Site preparation for the cabin.
Sure was thirsty work! The logs were recovered from the lake. First log is in position now. Pictured are part of the crew.
