It's hard to figure out what this building was first used for. It's doubtful it was used for a residence although it might have been, at least for a while while the house was being built. It's likely it was used as a barn.
This garage and shed still had some items left in them. Harness equipment and a few odds and ends as well as an old kerosene egg incubator which I wish I had taken a picture of.
The logs they used to build with are not very large. The average width across is probably only about 4 to 5 inches. Can you imagine only having logs that width with mud packed in between for insulation at 30 below?
This little building interested me so I decided to walk over and take a closer look. It was actually a one room house. There was still an old bed against one wall and a cupboard and some chairs as well as other things strewn about. I'm wondering if it was the very fist home build on this quarter. How many people do you think first lived in it?
Some item inside. Not wanting to force the door open due to the snow I took these pictures through the open door. I had also only brought my large lens so was having difficulty taking any close up pictures!
An old wood stove tipped over and left. It must have been a beauty in its day. Love the color! Wonder what I will find on our next drive?
