One of the highlights of this project is the fact that me and my Dad have spent a lot of time together on it, as well as my wife and I. That just makes it better!!!

Coming from a contractor, that is a fine job. I would be willing to bet one of you has done some time in the field.

Re: Deer lease cabin - 12/25/13 03:04 PM

No we have no experience in the building field but thanks for the kind words. I do come from a background of "if you want one you better build it your self"

Re: Deer lease cabin - 12/26/13 08:06 PM

Thanks all it really is a neat place we love it. I find it amazing that no one has mentioned the cook stove in the pictures,I think it is one of the neatest things there. It is a 1930 roper gas range has cooking instructions inside the oven door. I love that old stove hope to get an old refrig also.

Re: Deer lease cabin - 12/26/13 08:07 PM

Awesome cabin
I haven't seen many deer that the longest tines where the dog catchers, maybe just the angle of the photo

I saw it. cheers Great old stoves and loved the storage spaces on it. We still have one on the ranch. It has a lid for the 2 burner on left and separate lid for 2 burners on right. We also still have and old Ammonia absorption Servel Refrigerator That was originally Kerosene but had been converted to Butane. It was on standby in case we lost electric. It will even make fair amount of ice. It has to be around 65 years old and still works.

True craftsmanship! I know what you mean on calling it a lease. I haven't hunted on leased land in 13 years, but I still tell my wife I'm headed down to the lease.
Posted By: bdotson

Re: Deer lease cabin - 09/14/14 10:08 PM

well its been almost a year and we (My wife and I) who is my lease partner and hunting pal have spent a lot of time on our cabin. Were almost there and are proud to say we did almost all of the work our self. We have had a year never to forget and can now see the end in sight.

Re: Deer lease cabin - 09/15/14 06:56 AM

That's awesome, I really like the inside and different wood colors.

I also really like that oven, where did you find something like that at?

I do see one other project that needs to be done though, you need yourself a pond down in that field below the corn feeder. Walk out the front door with a cup of coffee, the leaves turning color, deer at the feeder, ducks on the pond with steam rising off the water in that cool fall air....... sounds just about perfect.

Sounds just about perfect. If you look close in the second pic of the view you will see my pond not as big as I would like but its ok for now. We have catfish and there are usually wood ducks on the pond when you drive up to feed the fish. its 400 yds to the north. I would like to increase the size of it as a up coming project. Thanks for all your comments Buddy

Has anybody seen the stone shape of texas in the fireplace? Its just above the plug and the panhandle and west texas are red colored. If you look there are the seven regions of texas. Once you see it you cant miss it. Thanks to all who have commented we are very proud. Its like being the only kid on the block with a pony!!!!!!!!
