Grain Bin Getaway: A cabin in the round

What once stored corn and beans now provides a weekend escape for those looking for a little R&R. That’s right, this former grain bin offers posh digs for up to four people and a view of a the Primghar Golf & Country Club’s eighth green. On the second floor, the cabin even offers an appropriately named Heckler’s Deck for the more boisterous guest.

The cabin was created by the three Edwards brothers, Kurt, Jim and Tom. They converted one of their 80-plus bins that had been in the family business for three generations and dubbed it Bill’s Cabin, after their late father who loved golf.

“Actually, my mother was the one who first thought of the idea, after seeing a story about one of these bins in a magazine,” says Kurt. “My dad thought that was just a crazy idea and laughed, but here it is.”

Apparently, Mom gets the last laugh.
