The project that we are about to undertake is to restore an old log cabin that sits on part of our property. It is a Dogtrot style log cabin, though we are unsure of the specific date, these were popular in the South in the early 1800s. Our plan is start by replacing the rotten logs, then to close in the cabin with chinking, windows, doors, and two fireplaces. After that we will begin work on the inside, updating with electricity and running water, and creating a space that will be functional for a small ceramics studio, kitchen/dining area, and living space in the loft.
We would like to eventually make this a space for ceramic artists to retreat and have the facility to work at the same time.
This is what we are starting with:
