It all began when John and Patti Meyer were searching for a tiny cabin for maple sugaring in northern Wisconsin. Word got out, and people with unwanted cabins started calling. Within a year, John had dismantled and collected nine log buildings. That was a lot more syrup than the Meyers would ever make.
The solution to the surplus is their unique family getaway in Egg Harbor. Nestled on the western shore of the Door County Peninsula, the house incorporates a string of three cabins—each at least a century old—all carefully reconstructed atop a fieldstone foundation (to raise ceilings) and knitted together with a galvanized roof and new construction.
