It started with a lawn chair from Wal-Mart...
Hey! This site is all about my little Cabin in the Mountains of Western North Carolina. (and now building my new house) It's off the Blue Ridge Parkway, between Buffalo Cove and Boone, northwest of Charlotte.Deep in the heart or the Blue Ridge Mountains. After I saw the BRP (Blue Ridge Parkway) flying into Charlotte over 15 years ago, I liked it! I LOVED it! I wanted more of it! I bought a newspaper in the airport, circled a few ads, settled on one, met the guy who showed me a few properties, picked this one, at his suggestion, and bought it. I started with a lawn chair from Wal mart, then bought a trailer, sold that, then slowly built my 20'x25' cabin with very little knowledge of Building or Construction, and ALOT of help from friends. One n, day I decided to build a house next to my little cabin, I was advised to do it right, and get all the permits and inspection, and to overbuild rather than to skimp and materials, which I have
The picture above is years ago, it's the first load of block delivered for the house I am now building. Its under roof now and I've been making steady progress with the help of a fantastic neighbor thats doing most of the work with a few helpers, but not many, and its going GREAT!
