Notes
Survey number HABS MN-146-AM
Significance: ... the building was sited in a secluded part of the estate so that it could be a "special cabin" for "someone who wanted to be alone." Waleski states that it was "never used." Waleski also asserts that the cabin was constructed "in the 1930s." Unlike the other cabins, however, this building is not mentioned in the personal property inventory of the estate compiled in 1938 as part of David Gage Joyce's probate file. It probably was built shortly thereafter. ... This single-story, wood-frame, gable-front cabin is oriented on a northwest-southeast axis, with the front facing northwest. An enclosed, hipped-roof porch extends across the entire front end. Split-log siding covers all of the building except for a small shed-roofed section to the southwest, which is clad in wood drop siding. The entire exterior is painted brown, helping the building blend with the forest that closely surrounds it.
