Tulsa's Philbrook Museum is getting a little more rustic.

Artist Karl Unnasch is installing a reclaimed 1880s log cabin in the museum's garden.

The cabin was found in northern Wisconsin, but needed some work.

So, Unnasch is modifying it.

The windows and doors will be stained glass made from recycled glass found around Tulsa, and the roof will be made using books about eastern Oklahoma.

It's also going to have something else very important in Tulsa.

"It'll be a permanent addition to our garden, it will be air conditioned (laughter)  ... that's important," said Scott Stulen, Philbrook Museum director.

The cabin will open in February 2018.
