OUR STORY Beginnings

     Back in November 1988, we were living on a Houseboat and saw that there was a piece of property on the Seneca/Cayuga Canal, just down the waterway that looked  good for a dockage.  The first time we looked at it, we needed to use a chainsaw to walk thru it. After a lot of  blood, sweat and tears (as the saying goes),  we built our new home dockage. We were able to move on to it just 6 months later.  April 15, 1989.  From the very beginning , we planned to take down the huge cotton wood trees and saw them into lumber. We used that lumber to build all of the buildings on this property  " from the trees.... from the land".
