Custom Northern Minnesota Log Home & 80± Acres

Estate of Ronald Erickson

Located 9 miles north of Walker, MN on MN Hwy. 371 at
11337 State 371 NW Walker, MN 56484

Ronald lived his dream of building a majestic home in the north woods of Minnesota after he retired. He spent his time cutting trees into log siding and boards to construct his home. Ronald liked to overbuild things so they were solid and would last, and his house reflects that ethos from foundation to roof! The family still has their dad’s drawings, draft layouts, and pictures taken as he built his home so anyone can see the inner workings of the construction process. He loved open views and internal lofts, so he designed his house to absorb its surroundings from the inside by installing lots of windows, dormers, and peaks.
This custom home and barn sit on nearly 80 acres of woods, wetlands, and hay meadows. The deer hunting is fantastic as the deer emerge from the woods to graze in his hay fields in the evening. Ronald picked this particular land to build his home on because it offered exceptional deer hunting and world class fishing opportunities.
The home is currently 2-bedroom 2-bath with the possibility of expanding and finishing the interior into whatever YOU desire. Unfortunately, Ronald was not able to see his project to full completion, but this is your opportunity to put the finishing touches on this magnificent home to your liking. The septic system is compliant with Cass County regulations and is designed for a 4-bedroom home. The water well was installed in 2012 and is a 4” drilled well, 60 feet deep. This home features insulated concrete form (ICF) foundation walls, foam insulation, engineered floor joists and radiant floor heat along with a very efficient wood burning stove to enjoy on those wonderful winter nights after snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing or ice fishing .
