The DIY Log Cabin Kit is the best retirement gift —  or birthday, holiday, or just cuz you love them gift — for that outdoorsy friend, family member, colleague, or boss. Great gag gift for retirement parties.


Hi, I’m Stu.

Almost 40 years ago, I took a break from hewing and notching logs on my first log cabin project.

Overlooking a beautiful lake in the canoe country of northern Minnesota, I brushed away the cloud of mosquitoes circling my head and flopped down on my stack of 40 foot pine logs to drink a bottle of water.

I had a ton of work (actually, several tons) left to do, but I don’t think I have ever felt the same elation and satisfaction as I did when I placed those first logs, carefully verifying and correcting the notching so they settled tightly.

It struck me that I was living a dream and “wouldn’t it be great if everyone could share it”?

Well, that wasn’t practical but as I thought about the pine cones around my feet, I had an idea… a great idea… a way to share my experience. Sadly, I procrastinated and that idea has been sitting in the back of my head for all these years, but no longer.

Today, I am inviting you to share the Do-It-Yourself Log Cabin Kit with those you love and care about… anyone you know who is, ultimately, “headed for the country”.
