I would like to see anyone's pictures or videos of their childhood cabins, forts or tree houses they have built. I think it does a person good to reminisce about the good times they had as a kid. I'm 59 now no grandkids yet but my great nieces and nephews sure like it. My nephew owns it now. I still plan to build a log cabin so I still have a little kid in me yet.
Thanks for watching and God bless.

I do live in a 90 year old cabin now though. Fire killed cedar logs from the big 1910 fires in the N.W.
I can't claim to have built it. I'm only one year older than you... 15 x 20 a whopping 300 square feet ! Multiple additions give us a huge 600 ft or so.

This is where the logs are laid vertically instead of horizontally because it allows a camp to be made with smaller logs, and shorter logs. I know it does not have the traditional look, but Maine Loggers developed this because the logging companies did not want to use good trees to make logging camps for the loggers, but instead wanted those good trees to go down to the mills as logs, and instead use smaller, shorter trees to build cabins to live in as they cut wood.

As I said, I have been married twice before, so when I met Katie, and things got serious between us, I was worried as she had two children, and I did not want to enter and exit their lives and cause irreversible harm. So I prayed, because I am a believer, and it was like he answered clear as a bell in a quiet voice, "And who did you say you were going to marry when you were a kid?"
When I was young, and played with my toy tractors and trucks, I always pretended I had a Katie for a wife. Then one day I heard a sermon on prating specifically, so I prayed my wife would be a Katie, that is how I would know.
But then I married a Tina and a Patty and wondered why it did not work out? Katie though, she is special, and my best friend. It is also why I use her name Katie a lot instead of wife. Her name means so much to me.
