Closing the Cottage
Marcia and her brother inherited this wonderful log cabin on Chase Lake (near Lowville, NY) from their parents. You can see the old stone fireplace and the walls constructed of real pine logs and concrete layering.
The ceiling rises at a high pitch with "lodge pole" supports. The window is new and is at the peak facing the lake.
The opposite end of the room holds a loft. The red steps of the ladder are shown. The portable stairway can be pulled down for access. Note also the wide plank boards as part of the partition and railing.
The outside of the cabin as seen from the lakeside. It was built in the 1950's and has been upgraded and refurbished several times. The roof was added in the '80s and the stone work on the front porch was recently rebuilt.
