Our friend and soon-to-be mountain neighbor Art is in the process of building a cabin on Sheepback Mountain also, though he is building his himself and with his own hands. I greatly admire him and his ability, though he is quick to point out that he is only building a rough, one-room cabin. Still, he has cleared his own area, leveled it, put in a foundation and is now erecting wall frames made of the very tree trunks he cleared earlier.
Anyway, Art left Orlando last week and spent a 4-day weekend in Maggie Valley working on his cabin. But he took time to go by our property and take photos of the progress. Below is one shot, showing a mailbox (even though we don't have an official address yet) and, as an extra added bonus, we found out that we get to suggest a name for the road that leads to our driveway. We have submitted Mountain Creek Trail or Road (since "Mountain Creek" will be the new name of Cindy's handmade candle enterprise) and Enchanted Forest Drive (since my first impression of our property when I initially laid eyes on it 2 years ago was that it seemed like an enchanted forest). Now we're waiting to hear if one of those can be used.
You can see more of Art's photos on his Flickr page.
