My uncle built a cabin in his backyard.
He lives on 80 acres of wilderness so when I say “backyard” I really mean that he built his cabin out in the middle of nowhere.
You can’t see or hear his house, or any other houses, from the cabin. I guess he just wanted a little place to get away from it all and to offer others so that they can get away from it all. Of course, I jumped at the first offer my uncle made for me and the family to come and stay in the cabin. I figured we would have a lot of fun. My wife, on the other hand, wasn’t so sure. She isn’t really the “roughing it” type. Still, she was a good sport and agreed to go along. After all, if she completely hated it she could always stay in the real house with my aunt and uncle. It turns out that everyone loved the cabin. It has all of the amenities of home. But, what we all liked the most, was the gas fireplace. My wife really loved the gas fireplace. She sat in front of it and read a book for the whole vacation. The kids loved playing in the creek then coming inside and warming up near the gas fireplace. The cabin didn’t have a TV but that didn’t matter. I could watch the flames all day long and never get bored. I did also notice that my uncle had installed a ductless mini split system in the cabin as well. I suppose we will have to visit in the summer and check it out. Oh, we are definitely coming back for another visit.
