This is a great book that tells the details of building a cabin. It describes the different types of cabins, then tells in dteail who to pick a site, build the foundation, build log walls, doors, windows, a roof, and all the accessories. It made me excited to try and build my own log cabin, but there is a caveat that a log cabin canrequire sixty logs, and it may take up to five hourd to get one log in place.

I really liked this book. It explains the principles of building cabins, complete with sketches. Very easy to understand, has sketches of famous cabins, also some color photos. For anyone interested in building anything from a simple summer shelter to a comfortable small home, this would show you the whys & wherefores.
