RR’s Cabin

Somewhere in America

Built:     1830  (approximately)
Restored:     2003 – 2013

We don’t know much about RR other than that he is a retired mathematician.  Some 10 years ago he stumbled across the ruins of an original settler’s cabin.


Although most of the cabin was unsalvageable, enough remained to inspire RR to start a 10 year labour of love. After numbering all pieces, he moved everything to his own property and started the arduous process of restoration. I think you’ll agree that the original owners and builders would be proud of the end result.
