Arrowhead: The Cabin, part 1

Heads up! This post was published about 14 years ago.

Another big project Ben wants to accomplish this week is cleaning out, bracing, and moving a small cabin to a secluded location as a solitude & silence retreat.  The cabin (a.k.a. “The Fortress of Solitude”) needs to be lifted, dragged onto a trailer, and hauled about 1.5 mi to a nearby farm.  This morning we disconnected all the wiring from it, removed unnecessary hardware, cleaned it, and started reinforcing it for the move so it won’t lose structural integrity (i.e., fall apart!) on the journey. The 2×4’s cross-bracing the walls and the chains forming an X should help prevent things from going too far out of square.
