Hard Work Turns Historic Property Into Weekend Haven

A historic property that boasts a creek and grist mill is where the Mechlings decide to build a debt-free weekend home.

Before the author, Kurt Mechling, and his wife could come to their debt-free home for weekend retreats, they first had to spend many weekends building it. In eight years, they worked to transform a decrepit building into a place they wanted to stay.
