I have always wanted to build a log cabin. As a child in fifth grade I literally dreamed of going to a remote wooded wilderness and carving a cabin from the woods and living off the land. Needless to say that has just been a childhood fantasy until recently. Last spring I bought a Logmaster portable sawmill as an investment to use dring retirement.
