Many trappers depend on cabins for shelter during the trapping season. Construction of cabins in remote locations can present a major challenge. Simple methods and materials are a distinct advantage. Construction experience is an even bigger advantage. One of our members developed a method requiring two people and a minimum of tools. ATA organized a workshop to allow interested individuals to participate in the construction of a cabin, based on this simple method. A 12 ft. x 18 ft. cabin was completed in two days. ATA plans to offer a cabin-building workshop every 3 to 5 years.
