An Inherited Cabin that’s Stood the Test of Time
Lee Stover has been living in this cabin, which has no electricity or running water, on his Waldo property for 16 years now and loving his life. The 255-square foot cabin is heated only with a wood stove and lit with LED lanterns and an old gaslight system when the sun goes down. And a nearby spring provides fresh water supply that Stover would retrieve with a bucket when called-for.
“There is a fair amount effort just living [here], but I would’t want to have it any other way.”
The 70-year-old retired forester harvests logs on his property and sells the lumber he saws. Except for the log cabin, all the structures on the property including the large garden and storage building, were built by Stover using these lumber. His father built the log cabin from trees he felled nearby back in 1954.
“They built it strong, to last — and it has. The sturdy logs have darkened with age but have withstood the storms of more than half a century.”
