I have been looking high and low for those "metal wall grids" they used to cover the edges of the plywood sheeting? I used this model as inspiration for a little room conversion I did in the backyard, using plywood paneling instead of drywall. The metal edge coverings would add just the right touch to give it that "finished" look; however, every hardware store and internet search yet comes up empty-handed. Does anyone know where to find these? I've tried searching for other uses, i.e., ceiling and flooring, but still nothing.

If you really want to find out what a one-of-a-kind-type of cabin is, I highly recommend this one - our family have stayed there and enjoyed the cabin, the view, the frio river, the hill country/atmosphere - about an hour away from San Antonio, Tx. Great for weekend getaways from of the weekly work/school routine. Several friends or three families can all enjoy it together http://www.friofamilygetaway.com/cabins/Loma_Bella/loma_bell​a.html this way you won't have to deal with building one - just enjoy it a few times a year. Loma Bella Cabin.

Agree with roof design comments, but if they don't install a heat shield between the wood burning stove and the bare wood wall, they won't need to worry about snow load.

Wow, that $229 log is really inspiring.  I could make a fortune off of one tree! I'll even lower my price to $50 to steal all of their customers.  Oh, and I could use the branches to sell for firewood! This is going to be great.

The roof does not have enough "pitch" for a cabin where it snows. I'll bet it will leak and sag after 2 years.   Cute but poor planning.

Mick of The Ohio Land Company...  Amazes me that people look far and wide for that wonderful retreat and end up on 2 or 3 acres!  In S. E. Ohio... that getaway begins with 5 acres starting at 19k and goes up to 2,000 acres available in one location. Now I am sure that anyone who wants a true retreat can find it amongst our Muskingham Watershed District, with may lakes to play on and unbelievable amounts of hunting lands. We own and operate A+ Timberline Cabins of Ohio as a wonderful Ohio retreat as well...  I have been all over the world and you cannot find a better place to live than S. E. Ohio.... take a look at Salt Fork State Park. We live next door to the most visited State Park in Ohio...

It would be nice if MSN would do a piece on the impact of 2nd homes in places like Winthrop where the locals who have lived there for generations can no longer afford to live and where homelessness is an issue.  Rural communities feel the impact of urban people who come and
play in our backyard but dont support the economy. They stock up at Costco before coming so that they dont have to buy local, and even if they do contribute for a couple weeks per year they dont provide the economic generation of people who live here(in rural america) year round. I have pushed for years for a surcharge on vacation homes in property tax because it puts so muchn pressure on affordable housing.


All that said - I LIKE what the Maloys have done - living simply and not building McMansions is definitely more sensible.

Yes, agree...how much was this cabin?  $50k, 100k, 200k?  What is considered affordable?
Jan 15, 2010 4:48AM

A nice advertisement..... but in my view, what would be more helpful to anyone actually considering doing something similar to this..... Show how the cabin was built, materials used ect.... and include costs......


Just a thought.......
