Edgar's family owned a parcel of land in the mountains for years, using it as rustic getaway. After too many nights roughing it in a cabin on the property with no heat, plumbing or electricity, Edgar knew it was time to build his dream haven. He wanted a place where his family could unwind on the weekends, far from the hustle and bustle of city life. And it needed to be usable year-round.
