Laura and I went into Madison once again yesterday to run a few errands. The vet, the food store, gas and the building supply store. In the supply store, I had to grab some parts for an upcoming hot water heater project. Some more Sharkbite and copper elbows and a Sharkbite ball valve. I used one of the two I had to replace the main water valve downstairs.
While at Campbell’s building supply, I suggested that we wander over to the log cabin they have set up in the parking lot. I’ve seen this cabin on more than one occasion, but have yet to see the interior. Since I was with Laura and since we enjoy these types of activities, I figured it was bound to be fun. I’ll post some pictures of the cabin below.
As we were inside, a few of the guys who work there walked by. I stopped them and asked how much the cabin cost. One of them replied that the shell of it, meaning no interior, was around $18,000. Finished on the inside would be about $25,000. I didn’t think that was all too terrible for a house. As you’ll see from the photos, it’s completely livable.
Campbell’s also had a smaller, camp type cabin on display. I didn’t get a price on this one, but I can imagine it’s just a few grand. And this one would be perfect to have set up for guests. That and an outhouse would be truly awesome. Or even to have that setup up on some property in Northern or Western Maine. In the true wilderness.
Lastly, we deviated from our usual route home yesterday. I thought that since the temperature was in the mid-thirties and the sun was shining, we should check out one of the back roads off another one of the back roads. These roads around here are really great. They are hidden and many times, you’re left wondering where you’re going. This time, the road was short and led us back to our usual route. I have pictures of this as well.
All right, enjoy my little tour below. Ask questions and leave comments.
