The cabin was last assessed in 2006. It was found to be in generally good condition. Recent
repairs include significant work on the porch. This work included new sill logs, floor joists, deck,
fascia board and steps. Deficiencies, though. were noted.
Both the north and south sill logs were observed to have significant deterioration. The north
wall sill log was 40% rotten, all along the bottom face. The south log was 30% rotted in the bottom
Both sill logs will need to be replaced. This should be done in conjunction with some probable
repair of the stone foundation and site grading.
Many loose and out of place shakes at the southeast corner of the roof. From the inside there are
open holes and white mold on the underside of the shakes. In addition, the guy-wires on the
stovepipe have failed.
The roof shakes need to be replaced for a watertight weather envelope. If the shakes are from the
rebuilding of the cabin in 1970, then a complete new roof needs to be installed.
