|Hard to see, but the top is a bit to the right of the bottom. Also very pleased to see that there are still more than two rows of dry wood left at the tail end of the burning season!|
I was having a hard time picturing a way to straighten it up. The side that needed the bracing was also the side that had my doorway in it, and most of Grandpa's suggestions, as well as my own ponderings, pictured a diagonal brace from the top corner of one wall to the opposite lower corner of the same wall - this would have the brace passing through the door frame.
I could have put in a shorter brace starting at the door, but I figured that this would have little power to resist the lean.

I drilled out several new holes in the squares on the cabin deck, and then used the ATV's winch to pull the corner back straight.

|First check to see how bad things are.|
|Now a bit of creaky pulling. Don't stand under it right now!|
|Checking again. Looks good!|
|Fastening the squares in place.|
|Bottom left checking in - looks good!|
|Top right checking in - a-ok here!|
