I always like to see the hunting cabins/shacks that people go to during bow/gun season. Post a picture of your place!

If its not permanent I wouldn't get a permit....and it shouldn't effect the tax bill.....poured on a slab and that will make a big difference....

Question for people who have cabins on their hunting land...when building, did you get permit and make tax assesser aware or did you just build the cabin? I am thinking of building a 14 x 20 cabin. No running water and will not be a "permanent structure" - meaning it will be sitting on concrete blocks so I could move it if I ever wanted. Not sure how having this on my property will affect my taxes.

We were up at the cabin last weekend, got up on Saturday morning and fired up the wood stove. 46 degrees when we got there 5 hours later it was 77 degrees and about 40 flies came back to life, spent Sunday morning suckin them up with the shopvac. Cabin is small but comfortable----amish craftsmanship !!!

I would think if you board up every window you will not have sunlight to dry out or kill any mold.

We have never gone that far as it is so far back in that if someone wanted to bust into it they could just take a chain saw and cut a hole if we buttoned everything up that tight.

It all depends on your situation. We never leave anything worth a pinch in there except in the spring/fall when we are up there regularly. Plus they can look through the windows and see nothing is in there.

thanks DLama, i have tried to convince my hunting buddies to do that, but are hesitant. we "board up" every window when we are not there. to keep people away for 1, and also the bears. i agree a locked window wont keep anyone out but i guess their thinking is a boarded window will?

Leave a window or two cracked. Lets face it if someone wants to steal from the cabin who is going to stop them? A closed locked window will not. With that open the cabin can slowly adjust to the outside temps. We leave ours open when we are there also as we burn wood and you need fresh air coming in or the fire will use up all the oxygen.

That is what we do and there is never a mold smell any where but our is not exactly air tight.

no worries man. we are getting most of the mold in the new addition and not on the pre-existing. keep in mind the addition is about 2 feet lower than the original cabin

Where are you getting mold?

Dehumidifier might work. i run mine 24/7 in the summer in the basement. That definitely makes a big difference.

how do you guys vent the cabin with no electricity? we never had a problem before, but put an addition on and made it too air tight, and now are getting mold. just put a vent or 2 in the peak and some soffit venting.... or....? any help would be appreciated.

I know, I know. I got a great deal on all the appliances as a package and bought them before I did the kitchen. Guy said the dishwasher did not work, turned out to be a lose wire terminal. Figured I had the dishwasher already so why not put it in? LOL

I was originally going to build an addition attached to a camper, but then we went this route and sort of started going all in with things.

If it makes it any better, we did use an outhouse for 4 years and stayed in a mouse infested camper for 3 while we built. I had the outhouse record of -22 degrees. Still remember my dad jumping up in the middle of the night because a mouse ran out from under his pillow. Never heard those sounds before. Big Smile
