Heidi stranger. Just got back from the crick,had to grind some corn for the missis to break our fast. Comin in an have some when shes done fixin it. I’m Noah Ogle and the missis is Cindy. Ya can call me Bud if ya a mind to.
We been round heres a while came in 1879 and lived in a shack lookin place till I raised this end of the house. Later youngens came along an had to put on more. Some are callin this here a saddlebag cabin, if’n hit were open there by the chimney hit’d a be a dog trot. That thar cut on the cog joints is called a dovetail,helps hold um together good,builded this all my own self.
The assessor man said this place was not fit to farm but me an the missis gets by alright. Theys a spring up the hill thar I’m a gonna build a trough down to the back porch here so’s we a have runnin water. I run my mill that a way don’t see why I can’t do it here………………
This cabin is located on the road joining The Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains. He did add on the trough from the spring and ran it into a double sink on the back porch.
