After retiring from her job as a paramedic, Lee Charlton got into needle felting — I mean REALLY got into it! She produces wool on her own farm, buys exotic wool, spins yarn, and makes art with the wool fibers. What started as a hobby soon grew into a business.
As her business kept growing, there was no way it was all going to fit into her house. The Charlton’s had purchased a smaller building from Ulrich years ago, so it was an easy decision to purchase an Ulrich cabin shell again.
Lee says getting a cabin shell is a great way to go. It lets you get all the important structural elements of the building in place easily. Then it’s a matter of customizing the interior to your liking. The Charltons have done a great job finishing out the interior, including large concrete countertops, and a gigantic sink for washing wool.
For Lee, though, the cabin isn’t just a place to organize fleece or create gnomes out of wool. It’s also a place to gather with friends and family. She teaches classes, hangs out with wool enthusiasts, and teaches her art to her grandkids. “It’s my happy place,” she says.
