We call it the cabin because that’s what my dad called it. And he was the one who helped his grandfather build it. So maybe it was my superb grandfather who came up with calling it the cabin. All the guys in my family were hunters for generations. and so having a place that you could go hunting was really super crucial to the guys in my family. When I was a kid, my dad would take me up there for deer hunting. It was superb to be outside of the central air conditioner of our house and out in nature. However, I just wasn’t all that into the idea of killing such a beautiful animal. Of course, my dad explained to me that I eat something that was killed almost every night! Death was part of our reality and that goes with hunting. Still, I left the air conditioner at home less and less the older I became. When dad died, I inherited the cabin and initially thought I would just sell it. However, having 30 acres of pristine land really gave me pause for thought. Additionally, I had children of my own who I wanted to experience the chalet with. But the cabin needed a whole lot of renovations to make that happen. We started by adding residential heating and air conditioning to that space. The heating and air conditioning professionals installed many ductless heat pumps in that chalet. It’s a large structure and I’m impressed with how well the ductless heat pumps deliver the heating and cooling we need. Once we replaced the residential heating and air conditioning, we turned our attention to other conveniences like wi-fi and replaced kitchen appliances. The cabin is somewhere my whole family can get together to celebrate being in nature.
