The Construction of Wakinyan Tree Lodge

Here are some photos of the construction of Wakinyan Tree Lodge.  All timbers are native Red Cedar from the ThunderCroft tract of land. The entire lodge was built by farm manager, Leon Caldwell, with very little help.  Leon felled the trees and cut them into boards and logs using a small portable saw mill.  He planed all of the interior and exterior cedar boards and then created the lodge over the course of 4 months into the structure you see today.  Leon is one incredibly talented man.
