When Gina Rambo-Navarrete, her husband, Ken and son Alex moved into their new Mt. Lookout home in 2011, there was a lot of work to be done. A dilapidated cabin dominated the backyard and initially the family decided to simply tear it down because the repairs were so extensive. The neighbors intervened before they could go through with their plans and brought them up on the history of the cabin. It was built by Warren Giles, manager of the Reds from 1937-1951, who lead them to a World Series championship in 1940, and rumor has it that the players would enjoy their downtime there.  The homeowners decided that they simply must renovate it to its former glory and began the long process in the spring of 2011.
