Restoring Cherokee Pre Removal Cabin

by Wes Walraven
(Rome, GA)

We have found a Cherokee pre-1833 cabin in NW GA that we have purchased and need to disassemble and move to our farm. Its in pretty rough shape. Very wide logs with wide spacing in between. Any resources you would recommend we review which are specifically geared to Cherokee cabins?

This sounds like an exciting project. I'd read everything by Charles McRaven that you can get your hands on. He is the master when it comes to restoring old log cabins.

Here is also an interesting link from the National Park Service, which gives some history and info you might like to see:

Best of luck to you!
