Sixty five-year-old self-described “hillbilly” Richard Aiken is many things. He’s a husband, a father, the recipient of two PhDs and a medical degree, an opera singer, and an author of The New Ancestral Diet. He’s also, apparently, a pretty great builder.

Aiken had wanted to live in the woods for a long time, but always thought it would be a bit expensive. So when a man in Missouri told him about his old cabin that had fallen into disrepair, Aiken immediately saw an opportunity.

Most of the wood from the cabin was rotten by the time Richard got to it.
