Cabin atop a silo.

Log Cabin Atop a Silo

Field review by the editors.

La Grange, Kentucky

Farmer Rusty Combs had an old corn silo, 50 feet high, and thought it would be fun to put a playhouse atop it for his sons. But he never got around to it, and it wasn't until his granddaughter was born in 2011 that he was motivated to tackle the project.

The completed cabin, 12 x 12 feet, was hoisted into place in September 2013. It has a porch, lights, running water, and air conditioning, and can only be reached by a series of four ladders inside the locked silo. Taking into account its restricted access and wide field of view, it would also make an excellent survival cabin for a zombie apocalypse.
