Due to wetlands between our log home property and the lake, we have to follow DEQ rules for accessing the lake. We are creating a path 75% of the way to the lake with mulch that was created from a storm damaged maple tree. The tree removal service chipped them up for us and hubby has been diligently cutting away the brush. Once he completes the path to the boundary we are allowed, then we have to find a rolling dock system that will enable us to access the lake directly. For now, we've been using the public boat launch for our kayaks and fishing boat. I cannot wait until I can take a dive into the water from my own dock!
