Welcome to the newly revised, second edition of the Lake Home & Cabin Kit. The excellent response we received from the first edition prompted us to further develop the topics, which so many lake home and cabin owners found helpful.

You spoke. We listened! Our customer survey showed that our first edition Kit answered your most common cabin questions such as how to prevent septic systems from freezing, how to prevent erosion of your shoreline, and how to protect trees during construction. But you asked for more.

Our University of Minnesota Extension experts once again went to work to add resources and refine and develop new information. The Lake Home & Cabin Kit, Second Edition not only answers more questions such as how to start your septic system in spring and preparing it for the fall, what you should know about heating your home or cabin, and even how to create your own rain also directs you to our programs, publications, and websites for more in-depth advice. Plus, the second edition is updated to include all current environmentally responsible practices that you need to know about as a property and lakeshore owner.

Another bonus; we've added even more excellent resources from the University and other trusted sources. The information you'll find in these pages comes to you from the University of Minnesota Extension so you know it's reliable.
