Bravely plunging into the unknown, Herrle decided to build the house of his dreams, hoping to lead a more Waldenesque self-sufficient life of simplicity. Best of all, his beloved fiancée also was of the same mind, so Herrle set about building their future home, keeping the footprint small but functional, and using salvaged materials whenever he could.
Amazingly, Herrle was able to construct this tiny cabin of 11 by 14 feet in the woods for only $4,000 and in only six short weeks. The rustic interior is lovely (we love the colourful Mexican ceramic sink), and the house itself is sited on a hillside porch that wraps around some trees and juts out 12 feet high off the ground on one side.

Pictures From Another Time
In 1997, a woman named Rita Swift found an old roll of undeveloped film. It had a note attached “taken in our backyard Sep. 1969”. Rita took the roll in for developing but the photo lab and, to everyone’s amazement, 19 of the 20 pictures developed successfully.
The first 16 pictures were typical photos of Rita’s 5-year-old daughter, her cat, her swing set and other normal backyard pictures but pictures 17 through 19 turned out a bit different. As you can see, it appears that these last three pictures which were also taken in the backyard in 1969 display a different event of a time long ago when Native Americans owned the land.
If real, the images in these pictures would date anywhere from the 17th or 18th century. (Source)
