The Log Cabin
Pioneer living in style! Sometime around 1890, a very talented Finnish home builder crafted a log building (several, actually) near Ely Minnesota. In 2013, we dismantled and relocated this well-preserved structure to The Green Gate property and have since been working to convert it into a small home.
We believe big things can come in small packages. Once finished, The Log Cabin will be a comfortable and very well-equipped home in a small footprint. A grid-tied photovoltaic system and sustainably-designed utilities will provide modern power and conveniences such as a full kitchen, bathroom, air conditioning, and in-floor heat. Rainwater collected from the cabin’s roof will be stored underground, then triple-filtered to provide potable water for cooking and bathing. A staircase will lead to a roomy bedroom in the second story. Ample windows will bring the outside in, and the wrap around porch will invite guest to venture out! For those cold Minnesota winters, a wood-burning stove will warm guests after a memorable day of skiing.
Please stay tuned as we provide updates on this one-of-a-kind project!
