Really all the power I need. Could add another battery for more storage. An upgrade would let me run a dorm size fridge but would probably never use it. Also would have to keep everything plugged in. I store the cord and inverter inside when I leave.

When a man shoots with a bow it is own vigor of body that drives the arrow, his own mind controls the missile's flight......His trained muscles and toughened thews have done the work

Nice place Chuck!! Love all the pics everyone!! I really loved the last thread and this one!! I should have my place here within 2-5 years, currently laying the groundwork-want to live, work and hunt all in the same area. Looking in the same area you and your wife are, Sean, maybe we'll be neighbors!! Hahahaha! Gonna harvest my own meat and grow my own fruits and veggies-that's my dream and I know I am going to achieve it. Gonna pass that love down to my 3 sons as well!! Keep the pics coming everyone!! It's great motivation!!

This past week I was at the VT camp with exterior views on page 2 for the late archery season and took some inside pictures.

The main room is 14' x 15' and the kitchen area is off of it.

 -

Here are four views of the main room. There is a 9.5'x 9' "master bedroom" and a 9.5'x 6' bunk room behind the pine doors.

 -

...and front and back views.


 -

 -

The other view is of the closet with a curtain instead of a door as daily reminder of what we are looking for and the bathroom door.

 -

There is a loft above the bedrooms. The frying pan with bullet holes is a memento from the previous owners - there was an old geodesic dome on the property.

 -

and the plan for the day posted between the bedroom doors.

Thanks Damon.

Hope you have fun working on your interior. These camps can be a long term adventure!

Once we got the shell in place Labor Day weekend 2001 it was 6 yrs of weekend sweat equity to get to where it is today. I had never done any of this type of work before and without the help of a now ex-brother-in-law's experience would probably have not gotten the shell in place.

Pay-as-you-go was the only way I could do it. I got books for everything and learned enough to do the electric, plumbing, insulation, sheetrock and finish work - which you can see is still not yet completed. Made the custom doors and frames and still marvel at it all whenever I'm there. It helped that the small town it is in has no building code but I still followed the rules as much as possible.

I have forgotten most of what I learned on this project and still joke to my wife if I knew what I was doing and didn't have to redo so much I would have been done in half the time!

Glad I did it when I did as I couldn't afford to do it now. So if you get an opportunity don't let it pass.

Jon, roughly between Rothbury and Hesperia in Otto township, so not too far not to get up there often.

Joseph, "long term adventure" is one way to put it, lol! Always something else to work on. Fun stuff for the most part, though. I've been building stuff for most of my life and I'm still learning from mistakes. My late brother helped build the walls, a good hunting buddy from Colorado/Ohio helped on the rafters over a long weekend and a life-long friend shingled the roof and comes up often just to split wood and hunt/drink beers around the fire. Already a million memories of family and friends having fun there. Agreed on doing it when you can, I wouldn't trade my time there for anything.
