Mountainside log cabin demolished

Smoky Mountains are a home for many log homes and log cabins. I found an article that tells a sad story of one those log homes. Unlike many other stories, this one is a bad one.

A couple bought a log cabin as their retirement refuge. Ideal place for them, but something went terribly wrong. Water main break spilled over 80,000 gallons and cabin started to slide off its mountainside foundation. After that incident, the log cabin has been declared unsafe and will be demolished.

Now the couple has nothing to show for their huge investment and insurance does not cover such an accident. Those idyllic mountainside log cabins are not best possible places to build homes on.
