A Retired Mathematician Found A Rotting Cabin From 1830. What He Did With It Is Perfection.

CULTURE   :   DECEMBER 2, 2013

Reddit user srirachaforeverthing just posted what happens when you mix a retired mathematician father and an old, rotting 1830s cabin.

He decided to restore it. And the result? Cozy perfection.

This is the original cabin from the 1830s. A lot of it was rotting, but he labeled and transferred as much of it as possible to the family's land.

The staircase has a great story behind it. A large oak tree fell on the family's property. They were upset and didn't know what to do with it. After a few days, they decided to turn it into the staircase for their cabin. Looks great!

All of the wood that makes up this cabin that was not from the original came from the family's land. This is about as authentic as it comes for an 1830's cabin. This retired mathematician did an incredible job over the past 10 years.
