Little House on the Big Lake: Shell Cabin on Lake Superior Near Port Wing, Wisconsin

Yesterday I had fun photographing this cabin on the south shore of Lake Superior. It’s east of where the Brule River and the Iron River enter Lake Superior, and just west of Port Wing and Herbster. 

True, it’s a small cabin. But then on the other hand, it’s a big lake.

It’s also what they call a “shell cabin.” The outside shell is done, and the inside is framed up. That’s it. The good news: By adding the finishing touches, you get to make the cabin yours and finish it according to your own tastes and preferences.

It’s quite a spectacular location. Yesterday was calm and sunny. But when the gales of November come early, and when the waves come crashing against those rock ledges… Wow.
