Family Rebuilds Adirondack Lodge


The Whole Earth Catalog was a revelation to us in the ’70s. Then we (my wife, her brother and sister and I) were twenty-somethings sharing a family camp on a remote lake in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.Š

With our kids and their families, we’ve torn the place apart and rebuilt it. We talked, Keith Huff, a retired carpenter friend into doing the framing and roofing, and we’ve paid for some other services that were beyond us. But a lot of what’s happened has been our sweat equity.Š
