We bought property in 2018 that had an old structure on it. After examining the structure further, we discovered that, under the siding, it was a hand hewn log cabin built in the lare 1800's. Currently, I am leaning towards taking it down  moving it to another part of the property, and setting it up as a "pioneer cabin," restored to its original state with an outhouse (composting toilet), wood burning stove, rope beds, etc.  I don't want it to just deteriorate, so I want to find some sort of use for it, even if it just guest quarters for folks who want to experience a pioneer lifestyle or homage to the history of the area.

Can you think of other uses it might better have on a permaculture homestead?
