The cabin is built modularly with as much recycled and local materials as I could scrounge. I used a vegetable oil powered truck to acquire materials and haul them there. It’s off grid and needs nothing, yet there are endless creative projects that could be explored, like installing a hydropower system and a water catchment setup. There’s a nice open flat spot next to the cabin with plenty of room for people to gather round, have a fire, and throw up some tents. In the winter there is a welcoming sandy spot next to the river; in the summer, when the water level drops a few feet, it extends into an excellent spread of rock and sand that juts out to near the center of the river.
