That's good that you got the roof finished, I'm sure that's a relief for you.  Out of curiosity, how did you end up picking this island to build the cabin on?  Did you have to file a claim or buy the island?

It's not an island. It's actually a peninsula.
A few years ago the Feds opened up leasing again it was a little land rush.
You went out and found a good spot and it had to be 1000' from any other building or lease.
I was lucky enough to be one of only 55 people that managed to get a lease in the short time it had opened up. :)
The day they opened it up I was in the office for the paperwork.
The following morning it was filed and they told me at that time I was far enough away from the next closest lease and it was going to be approved.
Got the paperwork back confirming all was good 6 months later.   ::)
Only then did I believe I had a place to call my own.   ;D

I'm sure you are glad to have the roof completed!! Are you starting the siding next??

Looks like next weekend is going to be perfect for installing my rock cribs under the dock!!!!
Siding starts after that is complete.  ;)



Seems summer isn't over yet.  ;D

That's nice that they did that and great that you got it, I guess it's a lifetime lease or something like that.

Dave, do you have to renew the lease every so often? does the lease cost anything? You have it made Buddy. If I ever get up that way, I'll give you a shout.

I'm still on the original 5 year lease but when it's renewed for 30 years.
Costs me about 150 bucks a year.

Drifter/Dave the completed roof looks great and should last many years. Thank you for answering my question and also explaining how you acquired the property.

Well I hope so.
It does have a 50 year warranty though. :)

Holy smokes, that's a GREAT DEAL if there ever was one.  Heck for that price I'd live there year round if I had that deal.

Looking forward to retiring to my place on the lake and save tons of $$$$. ;D

Is there a limit to how many times you can renew the lease and can you transfer it to someone or leave it to someone in your will?

No limit and it's transferable.   ;D

Wait-What?
Only $150 per year? No real estate taxes?
That's PHENOMENAL!!!

You hit the lottery Dave!

WOW that's the best deal I've ever heard of.  Congratulations on getting it and I can see why there was a rush to get in on it.

Drifter,

 I just bought a deeded property (with a burn down moose hunting cabin) on a fly-in lake, 100 air miles north of me in N/W Ontario.  I intend to build a new cabin, and am ready to begin the process of looking at cabin plans.  I know that there has always been bear problems there, so I will go with metal roof and siding, not log.  All material will go in the hard way, it is a long way from anywhere.  Since you have already started this process on yours, do you have any words of wisdom or thoughts, it is always nice take from other people's experiences. Thank you.

Words of wisdom?
Take your time and if possible sled in your materials in the winter.
Flying in the materials gets spendy in a hurry.
Most importantly have fun. ;)

Was back at er again this weekend.
Managed to get my cribs assembled and installed.
Also got the land based dock section leveled out finally. It's been bugging the crap out of me for three years!!!!  :)
Even managed to load about a ton of rock into the cribs. Still lots to go.









Still need to fill in the section where the dock meets land to smooth it out.



Got a little more work done on the stairs to the loft as well.





Almost forgot. This rolled in Friday night.
Air quality was horrible!!!

What did you get some smoke from one of the fires.

You could see smoke from one of the Canadian fires clear down in the central lower peninsula of Michigan on satellite pictures the other day.
