Cabin inspections are part of the conditions of each special use permit we have with the USFS. The Zigzag Ranger District has put together a schedule of inspections which will have each cabin inspected every 5 years.
The inspections will take place in the spring and written reports with photos will be sent to each cabin owner following their inspection. They will typically give 30 days to make the necessary repairs. If more time is needed, they encourage you to speak with Greg Martin, Special Use Permit administrator.
Here is the current inspection schedule:
2018 All cabins on roads 3, 9, 10, 12, 12A to lot10
2019 Road 12A lot 15,17,19; all cabins on roads 13, 14, 15, 19, 20. 20C, 20D up to lot 18
2020 Road 20D, lot 20 through 38; all cabins on roads 20E, 24, 26, 27, 28. 28A to lot 20
2021 Road 28A lot 21 through 33, all cabins on roads 28B, 29, 30, 30A, 30B, 30C, 31, 32 lots 2 and 4
2022 Road 32 lots 6 through 32, all cabins on roads 34, 35, 35A to lot 80
Of course if you sell your cabin it will trigger an inspection and/or if the USFS see something with your cabin/lot they will do an inspection as needed.
Here is a copy of the inspection form (note that this form is exactly the same as the pre-sale inspection form). Below is also a self inspection instructions and form that the Forest Service would love every cabin owner to complete and email to Greg Martin, every year.
