Great view!! We have a cabin in Huntindon county, Pa. We planing on retireing (hopfully by next year). We started our cabin in winter as well in 2002. Boy we had some cold days back than. But the nice thing, after it's all say and done, you have something to look back on and call your own. OH, and don't forget the memories, ups and downs that your carry with you after it's done. I wish you nothing but good luck and good weather..
