How Rustic is It?

One of the questions I’m asked most often is how remote and rustic my cabin is. While it’s fairly remote, it has most of the comforts of home. The cabin has:

• a water well and septic system;
• a full bathroom;
• a four-burner stove with an oven;
• a microwave;
• a full size refrigerator with a large freezer;
• a washer and dryer;
• electric heat; and
• an air exchanger system to allow the cabin to “breathe” because it is very tightly built and well insulated.

The only major appliance it doesn’t have is a dishwasher. I don’t mind washing dishes by hand, but you definitely have to stay on top of things or the dirty dishes will pile up quickly. Being so far from the nearest restaurants and stores, I cook more often than I did when I could drive five blocks for fast food, so I wash a lot of dishes. It’s a small price to pay for living out here.
