       tracht, Gott lacht (man plans, God laughs) -- A solid 
       foundation : when you dig a hole, be smarter than the 
       shovel -- Kat : wife, lifesaver, carpenter : when you 
       marry, you marry the whole person, not just the parts 
       above the waterline; you get both the silk sails and the 
       barnacles -- The bones of the cabin : destiny can throw 
       down a pretty sparse trail of popcorn for you to follow --

       ready for it -- Finishing touches : when it's 90 percent 
       finished, it's finished -- Troubles in paradise : mistakes
       are the dues you pay for living a full life -- Settling in,
       grooving out : there's more to life than increasing its 
       speed -- Afterword. 
520 2  "Carpenter Spike Carlsen, his wife, and their recently 
       blended family of five kids set out to build a cabin on 
       the north shore of Lake Superior. Part building guide and 
       part memoir, Cabin Lessons tells the funny, wry, and 
       heartwarming story of their eventful journey--from buying 
       land on an eroding cliff to (finally) enjoying the 
       hideaway of their dreams. Learning as they go, and 
       learning about themselves and each other along the way, 
       they find in the end that they've built a strong family as
       much as a sturdy cabin"--From publisher's website.
