  • Thanks, all! Our carpenters would have loved to have done this project using only hand tools, but alas, our schedule was a bit tighter than Thoreau's! If you are ever in the Philadelphia region, Geri, stop by Tyler Arboretum. It's a beautiful spot, and the cabin will be there waiting.

    I would love to have that cabin built on my property with some additions to it.
