I try not to re-post. However, I love this story so much, here I go.
Sandra Foster experienced losing a family home as a teenager resulting in periods of homelessness, and living in friends’ and family members’ homes. She grew up, became self supporting, married, but never forgot her dream of a magical sense of place of her own. However, Ms. Foster didn’t just dream, she made it a reality. She took an old hunting cabin on her property and turned it into a tiny Victorian cottage–a romantic place of her own.
Sandra did all the work herself for $3000…there is no running water or electricity, and no road to it. One has to walk out into the forest and across a creek. And she still was able to create this beautiful retreat.
