Cragg Cabin Rebuild
Due to extensive deterioration of the Cabin, we are doing a fundraiser to rebuild the cabin. This will give us a chance to bring the cabin back to the original description. For this project we need your help. PayPal Donations will help us meet our goal of $56,500 covering labor and materials to replace
our magnificent Cabin.

Logs arrival-Taking logs off the Semi.
White Oak logs are on site for the beginning of rebuilding the Cragg Cabin. Bark has been stripped, and logs are ready for the next step.  54% of the $56,500 needed has been received.

Tod removes Bark and Sap wood.Our builder, Todd Daggett has completed the removal of the bark and the sap wood. The next step is to cut the logs to fit the size of the new cabin. If the weather would work with us, Todd thinks in one month, we will be moving the cabin to the park and tear down the old one.
Removal of the bark is labor intensive, done primarily with hand tools.

Pictures: Todd removes the bark from the logs and also, we show how Todd moves the logs in the lay-down area.         Moving logs in the lay-down area.
