Henry David Thoreau built his cabin by hand.
Remarkably, his materials list still exists. It accounts for prices down to the half-cent.
The amount of work just to carry in his building supplies is a feat unto itself.
Today, the dream of escaping to the woods can be realized in a way that Thoreau might not believe.
This little structure was trucked into the the Illinois woods in a completed state. It has a pond view and as much solitude as one could get and still be in proximity to what we call civilization.
One thing it has in common with Walden is that there’s no wifi.
