NOVATO, Calif. (AP) — Employees at Twitter’s headquarters in San Francisco will soon get to take their lunch break in 19th century relics.

The Marin Independent Journal reports the high-tech giant is installing a pair of low-tech log cabins from the late 1800s to serve as dining rooms.

The cabins were salvaged from ranches in Montana by a Marin County contractor and sold to the owner of an architectural firm helping to refurbish Twitter, Inc.’s headquarters.

They should be in place within a few weeks. The plan is to build booths inside them for company employees to sit in while they eat.
