Bowman’s mini log cabin is an impressive artwork
Bob Bowman, 67, tries to replicate the charm of winter through his log cabin, which he made inside his Grand Rapids apartment. The mini cabin stands on a pebbled foundation, i.e. a 25-by-16-inch frame. Stone chimneys, artificial snow, pines, polyurethane flooring, wagon-wheel chandelier, old hand pump, sink basin and clay pots: he made them all himself.
The veteran artist worked for hours together for a year to fashion this mini-cabin. Inside the cabin, you could see a bed, area rugs and a trophy Muskie. During the entire fabrication process, Bob kept on getting tremendous support from his friends and well-wishers. Though he finished this project several years back, still he never forgets to display it “each Christmas season for fellow residents and visitors in his apartment complex.”
