“One year, I overheard a couple of women customers question each other about whether they should go in that shack,” Pat explained with a laugh. “I decided then to build on, remodel and fix it up nice.

“The women enjoy it. I’ve also found men enjoy the craft items with the elk and other wildlife on them.”

Many of the crafts contain authentic wood and pine cones from the giant Redwoods on the Pacific coast, and driftwood from both the Lake Superior and Oregon coasts.
