If you can manage it, and it does not get so cold that the gas pressure drops so low that the gas will not flow, I'd suggest that you go with a propane heater and cook top. We can not get delivery where we are. So, we bought bought 3 - 25 gallon tanks. Filled off site they are pretty tough to handle weight wise, but are not unmanageable. We usually go through 100 - 125 gallons each season. That is now about $400 !!! But it beats the heck out of having to fool with cutting, splitting and hauling wood enough for a 3 1/2 month deer season. For a decently insulated 16' x 16' building a "3 brick" catalytic heater will suffice. A 2-eye cook top is about $100 and a small heater about $125 or so. Plumbing is simple and easy.

We ran a gutter down both eaves and catch run off in 6-55 gallon plastic drums. Excellent source for bathing water.

Smoke / carbon monoxide detection system. A great $30 insurance policy !!

A woodshed. Mine is big enough to use for hanging up hunting clothes

That is a great looking camp......I am just wondering hou many people have camps,tent camp, and travel back and forth. The price of gas is one of the reasons we want a place to stay it is only about 45min away for most of us but we can pay for the camp with gas we save going back and forth.


Wish we had a camp like that!!! The log cabin looks great
