Tiny cabin, big game

South Boston NewsSouth Boston News
Top, Still under construction by Carl Gard of Skipwith (standing on deck), this woodsy cabin will not only allow a disabled outdoorsman to get back to the woods, it won’t bear the stigma of “handicapped” should the owners ever want to sell it. Above, Pam and Max Crosson of Virginia Beach won’t be kept indoors by Max’s wheelchair, which he’s used since he fell from a tree stand in 2003. The subtle rolling of the Southside landscape is more suited to their liking than the steep slopes of Botetourt County, where Max used to hunt.

It’s hard to know whether this is the story of an outdoorsman who refuses to let a wheelchair and an injury keep him from hunting, or whether this is the story of a Skipwith builder who does clever, useful things with his design and carpentry skills.
