This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
Uncrate.com reminds us guys that our next shed, cabin, or outdoor retreat doesn't have to be some plain aluminum abomination of engineering. Take the Bunkie for example. With an outline that's a symbol of a house, it features a frame made using a CNC router, plywood and reclaimed barn board in the interior, and the ability to be flat-packed and shipped to the site for final assembly. Glass front and back sections keep the whole thing from feeling cramped, and with two queen-sized murphy beds built into a main wall, it's got plenty of room for whatever you have planned.
