Room turned into Log Cabin Replica 

The unique characteristics of the log home lifestyle can be considered somewhat of a luxury. The individuals lucky enough to have a log cabin or even build one themselves with a #logcabinkit have achieved something that many crave. 

One man took an unfinished basement room and put his carpentry skills to work so that he could transform it to look like a 50s era #logcabininterior.

He designed his cabin room by repurposing lumber from shipping crates and added various rustic furniture pieces, a faux fireplace and artillery shell. 

Check out his creation at makezine.com: 
Designer turns drab unused room into a faux log cabin using $107 in materials. The idea was to turn the room into a 50’s-era hunting cabin with décor to match.
