I added an old wooden door to the back of that little log cabin.
And, I painted it red.
A man should always have a back door to his log cabin. He just never knows when a quick escape will be necessary to flee from a wife with a list of “a few weekend chores”. lol
I added a simple roof above the stone landing of that doorway. During the winter I would stack my firewood here. If there was a big snow storm coming I would stack the wood clear up to that roof. I took great pride in my stacking abilities… each “firewood tower” was a work of art.
Here my firewood supply was only three steps from the cabin’s fireplace. It proved to be a mighty handy feature to have in a new home… not one that you will find in any Ryan Homes catalog… for sure.
The only downside to this feature was that I spent more time doing chores during the winter… with my escape door blocked with all that firewood.
