No matter how you monitor the project, the relationship with your builder is key. “You must have faith, absolute trust, in the contractor,” Mr. Torrance said. “Trust is more important than money.”

Your Second Home | Building in Absentia

Dream Is There. You’re Here.

For builders like Mr. Torrance and his crew, hunting season means saving room in the backpack for erratically shaped burls and twigs and gigantic fungi (nifty for sconces). Improvisational carpentry has always been an important part of camp building. ''You realize it was a lumberjack who did the work, or a farmer who had a free afternoon,'' said Mr. Torrance, who has a courtly woodsman's demeanor and grew up in Lake Placid. ''That's the nice thing about building these places. Nothing is predetermined. You stand there with a pile of twigs and branches and then you work up a pattern, a feel. If 'It lacks a little something.' You kind of sculpt them.''

Out Twigging the Neighbors; In the Adirondacks Great Camps are Sprouting Again

"The most important aspect of building a house like this is that you have to have a builder who understands. The man's name is Peter Torrance. He knows everything there is to know about traditional Adirondack houses, he's in every single Adirondack-Style book. I could not call him a contractor-he's a gentleman builder and completely amazing. He has craftsmen who have learned to weave magic with twigs."
