The Ripley's World Famous Redwood Log House

The Ripley's Redwood Log Cabin is a 1900 year old Redwood tree that once stood over 247 feet high and 14 feet in diameter. This log used for the cabin was the fourth cut from the tree in 1938, measuring 33 feet long and and 8 feet long. The section of trunk used to construct the house contains more than 11,000 feet of lumber, enough to build a five bedroom house.




Len Moore was looking to take refuge during a storm and found cover in a burned out redwood tree. He got the incredible idea to build his dreamhouse out of the massive tree, taking only four months to chisel out the interior and over a year to build.
