Salvage Beauty

The Hazel River Cabin consists of a 1794 log cabin, its 1856 clapboard addition, and a larger, 1840 log cabin that was moved from another site.

Cedar shakes cover the roofs of the cabins, while standing seam metal tops the addition and porch.

The remaining second level of the 1840 cabin overlooks the home's main living space.

New windows in the main living area maximize views of Old Rag Mountain and the Hazel River.

A new kitchen adds a bit of color to the interiors.

A granite-floored connecting piece links the kitchen to the dining room, which occupies the 1856 addition.

In the 16-by-16-foot 1794 cabin, the building team removed the second floor and restored the original fireplace.

In the master bedroom, a modern built-in headboard and steel railings contrast with historic log walls.
