This guy found this 1830’s log cabin and hated to see it just stand there and rot away. He knew there wasn’t much time left before it was a pile of rotted wood so he went to work quickly. His goal was to save this abandoned cabin. His priority was to label the salvageable pieces of lumber and delicately transfer them to his own property, where he could resurrect this gem into the glory that it used to be. This DIY restored cabin is really something to be proud of! Look at the step by step pictures below.
