Birch Sided Structure

Great Camps are known for their size, extensive grounds, and outbuildings and this lake side cottage is no exception. Here is a building located near the lake that was constructed for residents and visitors to use for changing before and after swimming. The building originally had 6 different changing rooms, each with it's own door. The current owners combine four of the rooms to make one larger storage area. The slabs of White Birch are used both vertically and horizontally and probably were left over from a nearby dowel factory (no longer in business). It has a covered porch all the way around and uses local logs for support posts. This building was probably constructed in the 1930's or 40's.
