An FYI for people who might be in the market for land with a cabin.  Here is a cordwood cabin (with timber frame, straw/clay slip and board and batten) on 35 acres of land in western Wisconsin (Glenwood City), near the border with Minnesota.  [This property is sold.]

The framework is a timber frame on a raised platform foundation. 

The 35 acres is partly wooded, part open for potential planting.  

The straw-clay-slip walls are covered with a natural plaster and one wall has wainscoting.  There is also cordwood siding on the second floor. 

There is a front porch/deck with ample room for a sheltered picnic or stargazing. 

Colored glass bottles on the inside and the outside. 

There is also a loft.

Beautiful attention to detail throughout.  Very clean tuckpointing.
