    My husband is a woodworker and had an idea to put all of our electrical in a custom built little house. He decided to build a log cabin for it. He ran underground wires up through a hollow post. The house holds 3 receptacles that connect to a ground fault receptacle in our shop building. Light sensors are triggered through the window of the log cabin to light the pond and landscaping lights. You can get to the receptacles through a door in the back of the cabin. I will be adding a miniature Heron weathervane, rocking chair, window flower box, and of course a "No Fishing" sign on the door when they come in. My husband built the house and I added river rock to make the chimney. I am attaching pictures from start to finish and will added another when I add the little finishing touches to the cabin.

    Thank you HARO we had so much fun putting it together. We thought the grandkids would enjoy it. I would like to get my husband to rig a little light on the front porch.

    I made a mini splendors gate house and put it near my pond to house the aerator and parts and call it my house on the lake and plan on a couple of other things .I do love
    that log cabin if people just look at building a doll house it is the same thing just needs to be waterproofed

    It even has sliding glass door on the back for my 2 sets of sliders .

    I love it Sissy and the little koi sticking his head out of the water. Husband said it was waterproof so I'm hoping so. I have found a dolohouse place in another state that has so much stuff that could get you very addictive and bankrupt ya.

    Viagara? Been there many a time! Love the way the water roars over the cliff and sends up all that spray. Don't see how anyone would be dumb enough to think they could actually buy it, though. :wave:
    John
    Just read the second post, Sissy. Have to disagree with you on one point, though: Just one lady, 40 years in six days' time! However, you're right on the other count: I'm a real sweety!!! :LOL:
    John, again
