Richard Aiken is sixty-five years old. He’s sort of a jack of all trades and a master of all of them. He’s a husband, a father, he earned two Ph.D.s, he has a medical degree, he’s an opera singer, and he’s the author of The New Ancestral Diet. Also, as you’ll soon see, he’s a pretty fantastic builder.
How can one person be this good at so many things? I have no idea. But keep reading if you want to watch him turn this shack of a log cabin into something extraordinary.
How It All Started
Richard had been interested in purchasing a home in the woods for a while. I mean, who doesn’t want to go all Walden and escape into nature for a bit?
Can you imagine just waking up, walking out your front door, and being in the middle of nowhere surrounded by trees? That honestly sounds like a dream. At the same time, this probably wouldn’t be the first home we would consider buying.
