    Very nice Kevin. I was waiting to see the porch. A rocking chair is a needed accessory.

    Since last time I posted, I added a small window next to the door. What can I use to get rid of mice and rodents? Moth balls dont work, neither does fox urine.

    For the mice and such I use antifreeze. I take a coffee can top and pour less than an ounce in it. I have only been using it a short time but seems to work quite well in my garage. Of course if you have cats or dogs you wouldn't be able to use it.
    Looking really good there!

    I thought about it, it might work in winter since it wont smell too much.

    but use RV antifreeze (supposedly non-poisonous) so it doesnt freeze
    the antifreeze also serves to "preserve" them, in water they rot and it gets real rancid.

    Ive heard mice absolutely hate the smell of mint. If true, gives you tons of options, grow some on your perimeter, some essential oils in the corners or something. Could be creative, plus it would smell nice.
    Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.

    Want to BUY Springfield M1 .30 Carbine & Hollywood Senior Turret all steel.
    The left hawg weighed 405, right one 315 which had my elderly neighbors grand daughter up a tree and why I got the call. Both charged, one from 20' and the other from 40'. Thanks to the good Lord and Samuel Colt I won. May God bless our Lawmen & Soldiers!

    Ah... its the old log-cabin-in-the-woods-escape-from-reality fantasy.... once again.

    How many times have we seen posts exactly like this with huge page views and drooling followers?

    I get it

    vi·car·i·ous
    /vəˈkerēəs,vīˈkerēəs/
    adjective: vicarious

    experienced in the imagination through the feelings or actions of another person.

    Cabin built by William Lyle Hunter, 1st Lt. Mosby Raiders during the Civil War. Cabin located on Hunter Mt. on the western rim of Death Valley, Calif at 7,000 foot elevation. Hunter ran a horse and mule train to the mines in Death Valley. I've stayed in this cabin twice way back in the 1980s.

    I get it. I really do. Fine job young Kev18.

    Nice work. The cabin looks great. I wish I could have my own little retreat like this. Maybe one day.

    +1 for the 5 gallon bucket with rv antifreeze. some peanut butter on round dowel through top of bucket and a ramp so they can get to it. I left one in root cellar for 6 months and had quite a cocktail in bucket.
