Eric & Beth built their Rendezvous Cordwood Cabin in Wisconsin this year. They use it during “gathering activities” on their land. They hold Tomahawk and Bowie knife throwing contests, Muzzleloading target shoots and all manner of historical and woodsy/folksy activities.
You may notice that the flag has 13 stars, the flag of the original 13 colonies.
There are so many wonderful cordwood accents to the cabin. The 16′ x 24′ cabin has a telephone post on concrete pad foundation.
Like this mushroom, Lake Superior stones and bottles.
Mortared in strategic places.
This cabin has some of the neatest and most artistic cordwood we have ever witnessed. It is a credit to Eric and Beth and the friends who helped them. They kept the “build” consistently tasteful and attractive. Not easy to do when the sunlight is fading, the mosquitoes are biting and there is still a foot of wall to finish:0) Time to fire up the “halogens!”
In order to keep themselves fresh and ready for rendezvous activities they practice throwing the tomahawks and Bowie knives. I stuck this one after only 5 tries:0)
