Jalopy Cabins Update

Lyle Congdon just sent me an update on what is going on with Jalopy Cabins now that Spring is here.

It has been a long winter here in Colorado! I hope your winter wasn’t too bad. We are ready for spring and to tackle some cabins full force!

We decided not to do the railroad car cabin idea this time around since it was proving difficult to find one and we really want to work with materials that just happen to come to us.

There is a ski resort area about 30 mins. from where we live and the owner called us to see if we wanted logs that they had cut down or had fallen down in the slopes. Of course we did! The hand peeled round logs are more work but really worth it!

We will hopefully have the roof on in the next couple weeks but I’m attaching some in progress pictures so you can have a preview!

    Very LARGE Lincoln Logs! I’ll have to get some close up photos of the logs up on our website so you can have a good look.
